USA - Stock Market

While revised GDP data confirmed growth was stable in the fourth quarter of last year, the economy appears to be cooling at the outset of this year. Preliminary indicators point to solid consumer fundamentals: In January, retail sales growth strengthened and labor market conditions remained strong, while consumer confidence hit a six-month high in February. That said, industrial output contracted in January and Boeing’s halted production of the 737 MAX will likely cause an inventory drawdown and weigh on growth in the first quarter. Meanwhile, health authorities have warned of an imminent outbreak of the coronavirus in the U.S. This spooked financial markets and caused oil prices to slide, while incoming data shows the epidemic has already begun to drag on business sentiment and disrupt supply chains in an already frail manufacturing sector.
