This Week's State Of The Economy - What Is Ahead? - 16 October 2020

Date: 21 October, 2020 | By : 

U.S. - Rebound Continues, but Initial Claims and Cases Rise

  • Data continue to reflect an economy digging itself out of the lockdown-induced slump.
  • Consumer prices and retail sales rose in September as activity continued to pick up, but a rise in initial claims for state unemployment benefits last week points to continued churn in the labor market.
  • Stimulus talks regarding an additional fiscal relief package continued this week, but an agreement remained elusive.
  • COVID-19 case counts are on the rise in the Midwest, presenting renewed concern of localized setbacks.


Global - Data Underwhelming This Week

  • Swedish inflation slid more than expected in September, with headline and core CPIF remaining well-below the Riksbank’s 2% target inflation rate.
  • Australia’s employment declined by 29,500 in September, the first decline since May, while the unemployment rate edged higher to 6.9%. The slump in the labor market in part reflects the Stage 4 restrictions in Victoria put in place to contain the spread of COVID-19.
  • Chile’s central bank held its policy interest rate at 0.50% at this week’s meeting, and did not announce any new quantitative easing measures.
