U.S. January-March GDP, GDI, etc.

US January-March GDP (Real Gross Domestic Product) was revised upwards from the preliminary forecast of 1.1% to 1.3%. The revised figure for private consumption was also revised upward from the preliminary forecast of 3.7% to 3.8%.

However, Gross Domestic Income (GDI), which measures economic activity in terms of income, fell 2.3% following the -3.3% recorded in the previous quarter (4th quarter of 2022). It was the second consecutive quarter of negative growth, suggesting signs of a slowdown in the economy. GDP and GDI are considered important indicators of economic activity in the United States.

According to Bloomberg, two economists at Wells Fargo & Co. said in a report that “the GDI’s weakness suggests that real GDP growth seen in recent quarters may be revised down in future data releases. It will be something,” he pointed out.

Meanwhile, the number of initial U.S. unemployment claims last week fell short of expectations of 245,000, up 4,000 from the previous week to 229,000. The small increase was attributed to the discovery of a large number of fraudulent claims in Massachusetts.

The level of unemployment claims is still at a historically low level, suggesting that labor demand remains strong, adding to bullish indicators such as GDP and supporting expectations of another interest rate hike later this year.
