Atlanta and New York Feds cut second-quarter growth estimates

For the first time, the estimated level using GDPNow is below the May SPF, the result of a downward revision of first-quarter GDP and slower projected growth.

The downward trend in nowcasts is notable. Consider GDPNow.

There was a big swing in downside expectations for Construction and ISM Manufacturing, with GDPNow raising its q/q SAAR from 2.7% to 1.8%, compared with just a 0.1 percentage point decline in the Goldman Sachs tracker.

That being said, second quarter forecasts still don’t show a recession, as do monthly indicators for April (see here).
