The US economy has registered growth of at least 3%, President Donald Trump's stated target, in each of the last two quarters. The 3.1% print for the second quarter, was the fastest pace of growth for the US economy in two years.
The data is likely going to be good enough to keep the Federal Reserve on track to raise rates at its December meeting. Ahead of the report, there's a 95.9% chance a rate hike will happen at the December meeting, according to Bloomberg's world interest rate probability data.The report will be released by the Commerce Department at 8:30 a.m. ET.
