Bureau of Economic Analysis schedules "Initial" Q4 US GDP release for February 28th

**February 7th Update: The Bureau of Economic Analysis announced that an "initial" report for the Q4 US Gross Domestic Product will be released on February 28th.

 

The longest US government shutdown in history is over. After being closed since December 22nd, the government re-opened last January 25th. At least for the following three weeks, the federal agencies that were closed will be operating after US President Donald Trump agreed to fund them temporarily while the Congress House and the Senate continue to negotiate over the safety of the southern US border. 

The US Census Bureau and the Bureau of Economic Analysis were among those agencies affected by the shutdown, so a bunch of data releases expected during this period was missed. They will be released during the coming weeks.

What does that mean for the set of US economic data releases that were canceled during the shutdown?

The Bureau of Economic Analysis and the Census Bureau published on Wednesday a revised schedule of economic releases*. There are still some releases dates yet to be announced, including the Advanced GDP report or the PCE data**.

 

The FXStreet Economic Calendar is being updated accordingly with a new schedule of economic releases that both bureaus provide.
