US: October ISM Non-Manufacturing Index

The ISM non-manufacturing index fell from 61.6 in September to 60.3 in October (vs. consensus 59.0). Despite the decline recorded, the index remains at a high level by historical standards and consistent with an above-trend pace of expansion.

The details of the survey showed declines in business activity (-2.7 points to 62.5, still above the 6-month average), prices paid (-2.5 points to 61.7) and employment (-2.7 points to 59.7, still above the 6-month average). The new orders component remained broadly flat at 61.5, above the 6-month average of 60.7, which is an encouraging signal.

A weighted average of the ISM manufacturing and non-manufacturing is still consistent with a pace of GDP growth too high (see chart). A decline in ISM indices should take place over coming months. Nevertheless, the economy is likely to keep growing at a rate above potential.
