New York Fed raises U.S. fourth-quarter growth view above 2 percent
The New York Federal Reserve on Friday raised its estimate of U.S. gross domestic product growth for the fourth quarter above 2 percent as upbeat factory and services data in September offset a surprise drop in employment last month.
The regional central bank`s "Nowcast" model calculated the economy was expanding at an annualized pace of 2.45 percent in the fourth quarter, faster than the 1.95 percent rate seen a week ago. Its growth estimate for the third quarter was revised up to 1.53 percent from 1.46 percent last week.
