    No inflation? No problem
    US GDP growth may have fallen short of expectations and CPI readings may signal deflation, but the American economy is fundamentally strong. A deeper look into the statistics, including into energy trends and Core CPI readings, makes this quite clear.

    US Q4 GDP growth revised down to 2.2% on inventories:

    The second estimate of fourth quarter GDP for the US resulted in a downward revision of 0.4pp to 2.2%, confirming that the US economy slowed down in the final quarter of 2014 after growth of 4.6% and 5% in Q2 and Q3 respectively. However, the main culprit of the downward revision were inventories, which are now estimated to have added 0.1pp to growth vs. 0.8pp in the original estimate.

    Key components such as private consumption (2.8pp vs. 2.9pp prior), fixed investment (0.7pp vs. 0.4pp), government consumption (-0.3pp vs. -0.4pp) and net exports (-1.2pp vs. -1pp) saw little change.

    All in all, a non-event.
