US DATA
US DATA: MNI Chicago Business Barometer Slips to 58.4 in October
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
The MNI Chicago Business Barometer declined to 58.4 in October, the lowest
reading since April, down 2.0 points from 60.4 in September. Business activity
continued to expand at a healthy rate this month, despite the pace of activity
decelerating for the third month in a row. A decline in order book growth and
unfinished orders more than offset a rise in output, delivery times and
employment, sending the Barometer to its lowest reading in six months. On the
year, the Barometer was down 10.7%, the biggest year-over-year fall since
December 2015. Despite beginning the final quarter on a softer footing, activity
remains robust relative to recent years. The headline index still sits above its
five-year average, with the latest moderations possibly reflecting a reversion
to more normal levels after a series of strong performances over the past 12
months. The survey period ran from October 1 to October 18.
