After a couple months of strong inflation, wholesale price fell in May. Low inflation may keep the FOMC from raising interest rates until later in 2015 rather than sooner.

Consumer sentiment slid instead of improving. Still, the reading has remained above 80 throughout 2014, which is a good leading indicator that the economy will continue to recover.
