Non-revolving credit rose an intrend $13.2 billion reflecting increases in both vehicle loans and also student loans.

Consensus Outlook
Another tangible rise in consumer credit is the call for January, at a consensus $17.4 billion vs $18.4 billion in December and $31.0 billion in November. Consumers have been drawing on their credit cards at a steady rate with revolving credit running at 6 percent annualized growth.
