  • Capsule Economic Indicator Summaries for the Week of December 5, 2016

    With Friday’s employment report out of the way, the next big wave of economic data is not due until the middle of next week – in the days bracketing next Wednesday’s rate hike.  This week’s calendar has very few noteworthy indicators.  This morning’s ISM non-manufacturing survey is likely to suggest that growth outside the factory sector remains moderately strong, and tomorrow’s international trade report is likely to indicate that the inflation-adjusted trade gap started the fourth quarter on track to be a drag on the Q4 GDP math.
