NEW YORK (Reuters) - The U.S. economy is on track to grow at a 2.8 percent annualized pace in the fourth quarter following releases of November data on personal spending and durable goods orders, the Atlanta Federal Reserve’s GDPNow forecast model showed on Friday.

The latest estimate for fourth-quarter gross domestic product growth was slower than the 3.3 percent growth rate calculated on Tuesday, the Atlanta Fed said.
