THE TAKEAWAY:[U.S. Consumer Credit Soared by $16.045B] > [U.S. fundamentals remained strong] > [USD/JPY Mixed]

According to Federal Reserve report today, U.S. consumer credit increased more than forecast in November. The $16.045 billion rises, fourth month since August, followed a revised $14.076 billion increase in October from $14.158 billion originally reported. Also, November consumer credit reading beats the median forecast of economists surveyed by Bloomberg News which called for a $12.750 billion rise.

Revolving debt, which includes credit cards, climbed by $0.8 billion, while non-revolving debt, which includes educational and auto loans, increased by $15.2 billion.

The above-expected credit figure indicates a positive outlook of consumer confidence in U.S. market. According to Fed’s Lacker, fundamentals for U.S. growth ‘remain quite strong’. However, at the same time, consumer credit index has been overweighed expectation in the first three quarters on a quarterly basis as well as in the first three months of fourth quarter on a monthly basis. The continuing growth of consumer confidence at a faster pace may increase the possibility of over-optimism and causing bubbles in the market.
