Q2 GDP Smashes Expectations As Personal Spending Soars Most Since 2014

If the Fed thought its life was complicated before, when it was expected to cut rates even as the US economy was firing on all cylinders and humming along, Powell's problems just hit nightmare level, following a Q2 GDP print that not only came in far stronger than expected, printing at 2.1%, far above the 1.8% consensus expectation...

...but Personal Consumption of 4.3% soared at the highest rate in five years, going back all the way to 2014.

And just in case that wasn't enough, government spending boosted the bottomline Q2 GDP by 0.85%, the biggest contribution to GDP since 2009 as it climbed by a whopping 5%.
