Treasury optimistic about a soft landing for the economy

Sept. 11:

The Dow traded up this morning, partly in response to Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen’s remarks over the weekend that the U.S. seems on track to bring inflation down without an undue adverse effect on jobs.

Rates are up relative to Friday morning, but most of the increase occurred midday Friday.

Growth in consumer credit outstanding slowed in July

Consumer credit grew only $10.399 billion in July, down from $14.016 billion in June. There was a $9.7 billion increase in revolving debt and a $0.7 billion increase in non-revolving debt.
