The Federal Reserve reports consumer credit data for April. According to consensus estimates, total consumer debt is expected to rise by $35 billion to a record high of $4.57 trillion. In the first quarter, consumer credit grew at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 9.7%. Revolving credit, which is mostly credit card debt and accounts for nearly a quarter of all consumer debt, jumped 21.4% in the first three months of the year. As inflation soared, consumers kept retail spending high by borrowing more.

The European Central Bank announces its monetary policy decision. The ECB is expected to keep its deposit rate unchanged at -0.5%, the level it has been at since September 2019. As eurozone inflation recently hit record highs, Christine Lagarde, President of the ECB, said said the deposit rate will likely be out of negative territory by the end of September. Traders expect a quarter-point rate hike for the July meeting and another quarter-point hike at the September meeting.

Friday 6/10

The University of Michigan publishes its consumer confidence index for June. Economists forecast a reading of 58.8, slightly higher than May’s 58.4. May’s figure was the lowest in the index since August 2011 as rising inflation, particularly record house prices, soured consumer moods.

The Labor Office Statistics publishes the consumer price index for the month of May. The CPI is expected to rise 8.2% year-on-year, compared to an 8.3% jump in April. Core CPI, which excludes volatile food and energy prices, is expected to rise 6% after gaining 6.2% previously. Inflation likely peaked at 8.5% in March, but how quickly it returns to the Federal Reserve’s stated 2% target will determine when the Fed can suspend interest rate hikes.
