The Commerce Department said retail sales surged 1.6 percent in March, the biggest increase since September 2017, after dropping 0.2 percent in February. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast retail sales accelerating 0.9 percent last month.

Consumer spending accounts for more than two-thirds of economic activity and is being buoyed by a tightening labor market that is driving up wage growth. A separate report from the Labor Department on Thursday showed initial claims for state unemployment benefits dropped 5,000 to a seasonally adjusted 192,000 for the week ended April 13, the lowest level since September 1969.

It also is unlikely to have any impact on monetary policy after the Fed recently suspended its three-year campaign to tighten monetary policy. The central bank dropped projections for any rate hikes this year after increasing borrowing costs four times in 2018.

“Key downside risks to U.S, growth are fading from view,” said Allison Nathan, an economist at Goldman Sachs in New York, “While we still think the next Fed move is much more likely to be a hike than a cut, we’ve pushed 3d death star ii cufflinks back our forecast for the next hike from the first quarter to the fourth of next year.”, Goldman Sachs has lifted its growth estimate for the second half of 2019 by 25 basis points to 2.5 percent, Despite the recent wave of relatively strong data, business surveys suggest pockets of weakness persist, especially in manufacturing..
