Forex: U.S. Consumer Credit Rose by $14.2 Billion in October; USD/JPY Neutral

Renee Mu, Currency Analyst

THE TAKEAWAY: [U.S. Consumer Credit Jumps by $14.2B] > [Increase in borrowing for student loans and autos] > [USD/JPY neutral]

According to Federal Reserve report today, U.S. consumer credit increased more than forecast in October. The reading of consumer credit came out at 14.2 billion, following an upward revision to a $12.2 billion gain from an increase of $11.4 billion initially reported. The median forecast of 36 economists surveyed by Bloomberg News had called for a $10.0 billion rise.

Revolving debt, which includes credit cards, climbed by $6.2 billion, while non-revolving debt, which includes educational and auto loans, increased by $4.7 billion.

Today’s report showed that lending by the federal government, which is mainly for educational loans, increased by $6.9 billion to $516.4 billion. In addition, the improving housing market, combined with reducing joblessness, has helped consumers to gain confidence and therefore to take on more debt for purchases.
