Der New York Empire State Index (Januar) ist mit -0,7 deutlich schwächer ausgefallen als erwartet (Prognose war 25,7; Vormonat war 31,9).
Herber Absturz – dazu: Lieferzeiten verlängern sich, aber Preise etwas rückläufig (siehe unten)!
Dazu schreibt die New York Fed, die die Daten erhebt:
„Business activity abruptly leveled off in New York State, according to firms responding to the January 2022 Empire State Manufacturing Survey. The headline general business conditions index fell thirty-three points to -0.7. New orders declined slightly, while shipments held steady. Delivery times continued to lengthen, and unfilled orders increased. Labor market indicators pointed to a moderate increase in employment and a longer average workweek. Both price indexes moved lower, but remained elevated. Plans for capital and technology spending were strong. Looking ahead, firms remained optimistic that conditions would improve over the next six months.“
„The index for number of employees fell five points to 16.1, and the average workweek index fell to 10.3, indicating that firms increased employment and hours worked. The prices paid index edged down four points to 76.7, and the prices received index fell eight points to 37.1, signaling ongoing substantial increases in both input prices and selling prices, though at a slower pace than last month.“
