The Other Big Economic Report That's Coming Out Today

The US jobs report comes out at 8:30 AM ET.

At 3:00 PM ET is another big report: US consumer credit.

Analysts expect a $5 billion overall expansion in consumer credit.

One of our favourite numbers to watch is the year-over-year change in non-seasonally adjusted revolving consumer credit (credit cards). It’s been growing on a year-over-year basis for much of the year, but the momentum definitely seems to have faded in recent months.
