US Dollar Falls As Credit-Card Debt Jumps In May By Most Since 2007

THE TAKEAWAY: [U.S. consumer credit jumps to highest this year, led by largest revolving credit gain in five years] > [Americans struggle to pay off debts on weak job market and wage growth] > [USD weakens]

Consumer borrowing in the U.S. jumped more than forecast in May, as credit-card debt recorded its largest gain since November 2007. The Federal Reserve reported today that total credit rose by $17.10 billion in May, the largest rise in five months and the ninth consecutive month of rising debt, while borrowing in April was upwardly revised to $9.95 billion from $6.52 billion originally estimated. The consensus forecast according 32 economists surveyed by Bloomberg News had called for a rise in debt by $8.50 billion.

Revolving debt, which includes credit card spending, rose by $8 billion in May, signaling that American consumers are struggling to pay off debts as weaker hiring and wage growth dampens consumer spending growth and confidence. Meanwhile, non-revolving credit, which includes student loans and loans for motor vehicles and mobile homes, climbed by $9.1 billion as students scrambled to beat an impending surge in borrowing costs.
