The U.S. like any other economy is highly dependent on consumer spending. Month over month the retail sales report has grown 0.6%, annualizing 7% for 2015. Before Amazon Prime Day was initiated, ecommerce sales increased 4.2% in Q2, up 14.1% since last year. We expect consumption to increase for the latter half of the year due to the holiday season and precipitous drops in oil prices. Another tick up for increased consumption can soon happen when wage growth gets back on track. Until then any cost savings from commodity related products will certainly boost the global economy.
