US Empire Mfg Conditions Slide In Jan

  • The Empire Fed survey was far weaker than expected in January as current business conditions index dropped from 31.9 to -0.7 (cons. 25.0), the first main business survey for Jan (surveyed Jan 3-10).

  • Forward looking business conditions saw a much smaller decline of just -1.3pts to 35.1, potentially hindered by 6 months ahead prices paid and received measures hitting new series highs (going back to 2001) whilst expected unfilled orders also rose.
