Monthly Economic Commentary and Indicators

for Mortgage Industry Third Party Origination Professionals

December 2019

The Trade War and Impeachment Hearings dominated the news during November, but that didn’t dampen Consumer Spending. Thanksgiving is behind us and we are in the Holiday Shopping Season. Retailers may have a very Merry Christmas as early reports show Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sales are setting records. That supports predictions from Fannie Mae, which forecasted 2020 GDP growth at 1.9% fueled by – you guessed it – strong Consumer Spending. As we head into the last month of the year, enjoy the Holidays, and don’t worry about the Economy – it’s doing fine.
