Economic Statistics for 6 Nov 12
The following US economic statistics were announced today:
In weekly retail sales, Redbook reports only a 0.8% increase from the previous year. ICSC-Goldman reports a weekly sales decrease of –0.2%, and a weak 1.4% increase on a year-over-year basis. Obviously, these numbers are the result of Hurricane Sandy’s disruption.
That’s all the economic news for the day. Other than that, I can’t think of a single event that I might talk about today.
