    • US GDP growth for Q4 is revised lower to 3.2% from 3.3%.
    • US Dollar Index stays in positive territory above 104.00.

    The United States' Gross Domestic Product (GDP) grew at an annual rate of 3.2% in the fourth quarter, the US Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) said in its second estimate on Wednesday. The BEA reported in its advanced estimate the real GDP growth was 3.3%.

    "The update primarily reflected a downward revision to private inventory investment that was partly offset by upward revisions to state and local government spending and consumer spending," the BEA explained in the press release. 

    Market reaction

    The US Dollar Index (DXY) edged slightly lower with the immediate reaction and was last seen rising 0.26% on the day at 104.07.
