USA - Stock Market

GDP contracted at the fastest pace on record in Q2 following a plunge in domestic demand amid Covid-19 containment measures. The external sector contributed positively to the reading, although this was due to a collapse in imports. Turning to Q3, activity is recovering as lockdown measures have eased since May, but the reopening has varied across states due to the uneven spread of new cases. In July, the unemployment rate dipped 0.9 percentage points, while retail sales edged higher, albeit at a softer pace than in May–June. Moreover, the fall in industrial production eased slightly in July and the IHS Markit manufacturing PMI hit its highest level since January 2019 in August. That said, consumer confidence dipped to a multi-year low in August due to the uncertainty surrounding the pandemic, while the lack of political agreement on further fiscal stimulus risks hurting the economy ahead.
