USA - Industry

Economic growth likely slowed somewhat in the second quarter, despite resilient household outlays. Temporary factors that boosted growth in first quarter should have faded, as inventory build-up likely slowed, while a contribution from net exports in Q1 seems to have reversed in Q2. Meanwhile, the housing market continued to weaken, with home price growth slowing to a near seven-year low in April. On a brighter note, private consumption, the mainstay of the economy, appeared to defy a slowdown as reflected by brisk retail sales growth throughout Q2. Turning to the third quarter, the protracted U.S.-China trade dispute risks further hindering growth. In recent weeks, trade talks appear to have stalled due to disagreements over Huawei, while Trump has threatened to impose more tariffs on USD 300 billion worth of Chinese imports.
