US Economy

  • Economic Indicator Preview for Friday, December 6, 2019

    The job market seems to be holding up well, and we don’t expect the November employment report to drastically alter the outlook.  Our forecast calls for an increase of 210K in overall payrolls, and the unemployment rate seems likely to hold steady at 3.6%.  We think the University of Michigan consumer sentiment index will remain slightly above its year-to-date average in this morning’s preliminary report for December.
