NEW YORK (Reuters) - The U.S. economy remained on track to expand a tad above 2 percent in the coming months as this week's data hinted at moderate growth in consumer spending and a rebound in factory activity, the New York Federal Reserve said on Friday.
The regional central bank said its Nowcast model showed the gross domestic product likely grew at a 2.08 percent annualized pace in the second quarter, compared with a 2.11 percent estimate a week ago. Its growth forecast on third-quarter GDP was 2.21 percent, versus 2.14 percent a week earlier.
