Der New York Empire State Index (Dezember) ist mit 10,90 deutlich schwächer ausgefallen als erwartet (Prognose war 20,1; Vormonat war 23,3). Das ist der schlechteste Wert seit Mai 2017!
Dazu schreibt die New York Fed, die die Daten erhebt:
„Business activity grew at a slower pace than in recent months in New York State, according to firms responding to the December 2018 Empire State Manufacturing Survey. The headline general business conditions index fell twelve points to 10.9. New orders increased modestly, while shipments continued to climb significantly. Delivery times lengthened slightly, and inventories moved higher. The employment index rose twelve points to 26.1, indicating that employment grew strongly, and hours worked increased modestly. The prices paid index, while still elevated, moved down five points, and the prices received index held steady. Looking ahead, firms remained fairly optimistic about the six-month outlook, though optimism was slightly more tempered than in November.“
