Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of July 15th, 2014

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – Next week, the economic calendar picks back up. Retail sales are likely to be the highlight, boosted by stronger vehicle sales in June. Ex-autos, sales results for April and May were disappointing – so we’ll be on the lookout for a rebound (or possibly some revision to the previous figures).

Industrial production data and residential construction figures have some potential to move the markets – they should point to stronger growth in 2Q14.
