You may well have seen the photo doing the rounds on the internet, but yesterday Donald Trump performed a double fist pump as he arrived at the 9/11 memorial service. It is currently unclear why he felt this was appropriate and we may well never know. Still, it was something to talk about on an otherwise quiet day for the US president. It is remarkable to think that the attack on the Twin Towers took place 17 years ago and our sympathies go to all of those affected by the terrible events.
Today is fairly quiet, but tomorrow we will see the inflation rate for August, as well as initial jobless claims up to 8 September 2018. Then on Friday, we will see industrial and manufacturing production figures, as well as retail sales for August.
