From BofA:

The narrowing of the August trade deficit to $67.4bn was slightly more than expected. After rounding, the data since our last weekly publication caused our 3Q US GDP tracking estimate to remain at 1.5% q/q saar. [October 7th estimate]
emphasis added
From Goldman:
We left our Q3 GDP tracking estimate unchanged at +1.9% (qoq ar). [October 7th estimate]
And from the Altanta Fed: GDPNow
The GDPNow model estimate for real GDP growth (seasonally adjusted annual rate) in the third quarter of 2022 is 2.9 percent on October 7, up from 2.7 percent on October 5. After this morning's employment situation report by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics and the wholesale trade report from the US Census Bureau, the nowcasts of third-quarter real personal consumption expenditures growth and third-quarter real gross private domestic investment growth increased from 1.1 percent and -3.6 percent, respectively, to 1.3 percent and -3.4 percent, respectively.
