We look for that to rise further today, which should point to an acceleration in consumer spending – the index is already pointing to growth rising from 2.1% to around 3.5%YoY.”

“Given we are now entering the key shopping season this should be very positive for the retail sector and offer support to the view that 4Q GDP growth will be strong.”

“If so, Federal Reserve policy tightening expectations may creep further forward and the dollar strength story will gain added momentum.”
