Retail sales accelerate further in September

Retail sales rose 8.6% from the same month a year earlier in September, accelerating from August’s 7.6% increase. September’s rise was primarily driven by higher sales of textiles, clothing and footwear, and furniture, radio, TV and household appliances.

September’s acceleration once again contributed to an uptick in the annual trend, with average annual growth in retail sales increasing from 7.3% in August to 7.6% in September—marking the highest reading in nearly five years.

    November 2, 2017

    According to IHS Markit, the manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) dipped to 53.4 in October from 53.7 a month earlier, remaining well above the 50-point threshold that distinguishes expansion from contraction in the manufacturing sector—where it has been for just over three years, the longest expansionary sequence since the survey started in June 1998.
