This Week's State Of The Economy - What Is Ahead? - 02 July 2020

U.S. - Waves of Data Headed into Independence Day Weekend

  • Total payrolls rose by 4.8 million and the unemployment rate fell to 11.1%. Another step in the right direction, but employment remains nearly 10% below the February peak.
  • Initial jobless claims slightly fell to 1.4 million for the week ending June 27. Continuing claims came in at 19.3 million for the week ending June 20. Processing issues may be overstating the numbers, but claims remain highly elevated nevertheless.
  • The ISM manufacturing index blew past expectations during June, rising to a 14-month high of 52.6. The surge likely reflects relief about reopening rather than a full rebound in activity.


Global - Q2 Set to Be a Tough Quarter for Most Global Economies

  • It was a mildly busy week for foreign economic data and events, while global COVID-19 cases continued to rise.
  • China’s PMIs beat market expectations in June as the manufacturing and services PMIs as well as the Caixin manufacturing PMI strengthened and remained above the breakeven 50 level.
  • Data out of Canada were less encouraging, however. Economic activity fell sharply in April as strict COVID-19 lockdown measures weighed on growth.
  • Finally, the Riksbank caught market participants off guard by delivering a SEK200B increase in its QE program.
