    “Despite a boost from lower oil prices, US consumers are reluctant to spend as reflected in sluggish pace of sales reported at just 0.1% m/m in September with August revised to flat from 0.2% m/m.”

    “Given that household spending is one of the main pillars of growth for the US economy, disappointing figures increased investors’ expectations that the Fed will delay its first hike since 2006 until March next year. Rabobank Fed’s watcher Philip Marey, however, maintains his long held view that a hike in December cannot be excluded.”
