Consumer sentiment fell again which is a bad sign for the holiday season which is approaching. It is now at a 2 year low. The GDP growth report was good if you look at the 2.9% headline number, but when you delve deeper, you can see 0.9% of the growth was caused by a temporary increase in soybean exports because of poor harvests in Brazil and Argentina. This result may increase the chances of a fed rate hike, but I still think the Fed is bluffing.
