US PMI still full of optimism in January


Industrial activity in the United States grew slightly less in January than in December. The British market researcher Markit reported this on the basis of provisional figures.

The purchasing managers’ index for the American industry recorded a level of 51.7 for January compared to 52.4 a month earlier. Economists had generally expected an unchanged position.

Markit also released the service sector index in the US. He recorded a level of 53.2 against 52.8 in December. Here the consensus of economists was 53. The composite index went from 52.7 to 53.1.
