  • Q2 reading was +3.1%
  • The personal consumption of +2.4% versus +2.1% expected
  • Before the personal consumption of +3.3%
  • GDP price index +2.2% vs +1.7% exp
  • GDP deflator +2.1% against +1.8% in exp
  • Core PCE +1.3% vs +1.3% exp

It is very strong nominal growth due to the increase of the consumer price index. This is a cheers to the Fed for a rate hike in December, and keep the «gradual» pace in March, maybe more if Taylor gets the top job.
