Der New York Empire State Index (Februar) ist mit 12,90 besser ausgefallen als erwartet (Prognose war 5,0; Vormonat war 4,80).
Dazu schreibt die New York Fed, die die Daten erhebt:
„Business activity picked up in New York State, according to firms responding to the February 2020 Empire State Manufacturing Survey. The headline general business conditions index moved up eight points to 12.9. The new orders index shot up 16 points to 22.1, and the shipments index climbed to 18.9. Delivery times lengthened, and inventories increased significantly. Employment expanded only modestly, and the average workweek was little changed. Input price increases slowed somewhat, and selling price increases picked up a touch. Optimism about the six-month outlook continued to be somewhat subdued, and capital spending plans remained firm.“
