Sharp October Drop in U.S.-Minus-Ezone PMI Services Spread

November 7, 2016

The U.S. non-manufacturing purchasing managers index fell 2.3 points to 54.8 last month. Euroland’s service sector PMI increased 0.6 points to 52.8. The differential between those two indices thus narrowed 2.9 points to +2.0. In combination with a negative 1.6-point manufacturing PMI differential, half a point more advantageous to Euroland than in the prior month, the sum of the two differentials was merely +0.4 points. Such was the smallest combined width in five months.
