The US economy contracted on a quarterly basis for the first time in three years, according to the second estimate of the Q1 GDP released by the Commerce Department. The 1% annualized decline in economic output followed a 2.6% annualized rise in GDP in the final quarter of last year.

Both Federal Reserve officials and business managers have blamed much of the first quarter slowdown on the unusually severe winter conditions. Furthermore, the Fed said in its April meeting that growth in economic activity had picked up between March and April. Because the first quarter data is almost two months old, the revision may not affect Federal Reserve monetary policy, which may be why the US Dollar ignored the release and rose in Forex markets.
