Der New York Empire State Index (März) ist mit 17,4 besser ausgefallen als erwartet (Prognose war 14,5; Vormonat war 12,1).
Dazu schreibt die New York Fed, die die Daten erhebt:
„Business activity grew at a solid clip in New York State, according to firms responding to the March 2021 Empire State Manufacturing Survey. The headline general business conditions index climbed five points to 17.4, its highest level since last summer. New orders increased modestly, and shipments were up substantially. Delivery times continued to lengthen, and inventories were somewhat higher. Employment levels and the average workweek both increased modestly. Input price increases continued to pick up, rising at the fastest pace in nearly a decade, and selling prices increased significantly. Looking ahead, firms remained optimistic that conditions would improve over the next six months, anticipating significant increases in employment.“
