September 2015 Chicago Purchasing Managers Barometer Production Growth Collapsed and New Orders Fell Sharply

The Chicago Business Barometer declined and is now in contraction.

From Bloomberg, the market expected the index between 49.0 to 55.0 (consensus 53.6) versus the actual at 48.7. A number below 50 indicates contraction. Chief Economist of MNI Indicators Philip Uglow said,

While activity between Q2 and Q3 actually picked up, the scale of the downturn in September following the recent global financial fallout is concerning. Disinflationary pressures intensified and output was down very sharply. We await the October data to better judge whether this was a knee jerk reaction and there is a bounceback, or whether it represents a more fundamental slowdown.

From ISM Chicago:

The Chicago Business Barometer declined 5.7 points to 48.7 in September as Production growth collapsed and New Orders fell sharply. The drop in the Barometer to below 50 was its fifth time in contraction this year and comes amid downgrades to global economic growth and intense volatility in financial markets which have slowed activity in some industries. The latest decline followed two months of moderate expansion, and while growth in Q3 accelerated a little from Q2, the speed of the September descent is a source of concern.

The Chicago ISM is important as it is a window into the national ISM reports which will be issued shortly. When you compare the graph below of the ISM Manufacturing Index against the Chicago PMI (graph above) - there is a general correlation in trends, but not necessarily correlation in values.
