September 2017 ISM-New York Report on Business

The ISM-New York Report on Business is released on the second business day of each month at 9:45am ET. The Report, which was first run in 1917, is a highly regarded indicator of business conditions in the New York Metro area including a six-month outlook, employment index, and current and expected revenues.  The September report, which can be downloaded here, includes the following: Current Business Conditions came in below the breakeven point for only the second time in 2017. Employment, a seasonally adjusted index, fell back into contraction territory after August's 18-month high. News for the top line and forward guidance continued to make small adjustments in opposite directions for the second month in a row.  Remember to check back in with me on Thursday, November 2nd for the release of the October report.
