Part of our assumptions for 2019 was (especially in the 1H19) US economic growth would slow vs 2018. Many indicators support this including the Redbook index of same store retail sales for the 3/5 week. Growth slowed to 4.2% (still robust by any measure) the slowest pace in 10 months. However, with the trade resolution resolved shortly as per market expectations growth should reaccelerate in the 2H19.
