Key quotes

The commerce department releases key figures on gross domestic product, inflation, personal income and spending, trade and new-home sales, much of which are closely watched by investors and policymakers. 

“Due to the lapse in Congressional Appropriations for Fiscal Year 2019, the U.S. Department of Commerce is closed,” a notice on the department’s website said. “Commerce Department websites will not be updated until further notice.” 

The Journal reported that the Labor Department would continue to release the data it compiles, including new claims for jobless benefits, the monthly employment report and other inflation measures.
