Consumer spending and income for June:

  • Personal income +0.1% vs -0.3% expected. Prior month -2.0%
  • Personal spending +1.0% vs +0.7% expected. Prior month -0.1%

This is another sigh of relief for markets. I think the flat headline is important as well. We've likely seen the highs now and we can already see the goods inflation and energy inflation rates are turning lower y/y:

  • Goods +5.2% vs +5.4% prior
  • Durable goods +7.2% vs +6.9% prior
  • Services +3.3% vs +3.2% prior
  • Energy +24.2% vs +27.3% prior
