Economic Data Table Update

I updated my economic data table for the new reports from this week. The main change was a shift in the trade deficit from “bad and deteriorating” to “bad but improving.” I also added PPI as “bad and deteriorating.”

Admittedly my characterizations are subjective and in some cases you may disagree with my classification. Feel free to offer your rating and reasoning in the comment area, and I will provide justification for my own.


Bad and Deteriorating Bad but Improving Good but Deteriorating Good and Improving
Existing Homes (June) Chicago Fed NAI (May) Consumer Confidence (June) Real Disposable Income
Employment (June) Durable Goods (June) Personal Spending (June) ISM Manufacturing (July)
New Home Sales (June) Construction Spending Retail sales (August 2007) ISM Services (June)
