US: Retail sales and jobless claims in limelight today – Rabobank

Rabobank analysts point out that we get a flurry of US data today, starting at 14:30 CET with the Philly Fed, retail sales, jobless claims, and import prices, followed by the Bloomberg indices (15:45 CET), business inventories and the NAHB housing market index (both at 16:00 CET) and finally the TIC data (22:00 CET).

Key Quotes

Meanwhile, we do not expect the Phase 1 trade deal to remove the fundamental uncertainty about international trade and supply chains that is facing US corporations.”
