    PMI Data Indicates US Economy Remains Sluggish

    Abstract:According to WikiFX App, the Markit Services PMI increased to 46.7 on June 2020 from 37.5 in the previous month.

      According to WikiFX App, the Markit Services PMI increased to 46.7 on June 2020 from 37.5 in the previous month; the Markit Manufacturing PMI rose to 49.6 on June 2020 from 39.8 in May. The two indicators have recorded a new high over the past four months, but below the entrepreneur confidence threshold, which indicates the US economy is still in a weak status.

      From the current economic situation, it can be seen that the US business activities have still shrunk in a gradually slow manner. After the lockdown measures against the COVID-19, most enterprises reopened from mid-March, which makes a little bit better economy this month. However, some of them still kept cutting jobs due to few requests for renewal and new businesses.

      Chris Williamson, Chief Business Economist at IHS Markit said: “ the downward momentum in US economy weakened obviously, which gave people great hope of US economic recovery and increase in the third quarter. But the unprecedented serious recession this time dealt a heavy blow to US economy, which appears to take more time to recovery. It is estimated that US economy will shrink over 8% in 2020.”

      Currently, the current economic data of many countries, such as PMI, and also news about US-China trade leaded to greater market volatility. Meanwhile, global risk aversion increased, and the gold approached the seven-and-a-half year high level on June 23th.
