Author: Eamonn Sheridan | Category: News

Morgan Stanley says its indicator is designed to catch turning points in the economy

  • it fell by 32 points in June
  • drop is the largest one-month decline on record
  • and the indicator is at lowest level since December 2008 (everyone remember what was going on then, right?)
MS says its signalling "June gloom":
  • "The decline shows a sharp deterioration in sentiment this month that was broad-based across sectors′ 
  • "Fundamental indicators point to a broad softening of activity, but analysts did not widely attribute the weakening to trade policy."
