ISM Manufacturing Tumbles To 22-Month Lows, Longest Losing Streak Since Lehman

ISM Manufacturing Tumbles To 22-Month Lows, Longest Losing Streak Since Lehman (ZeroHedge, April 1, 2015):

US Manufacturing PMI beat expectations, printing 55.7 up from 55.3 prior to its highest since Oct 2014, once again flying in the face of the collapse in US hard-data-base macro. More in line with the underlying reality, Feb Construction Spending dropped for the 3rd month of the last 4 and March ISM Manufacturing tumbled to 51.5, missing expectations of 52.5, to its lowest since May 2013. Under the covers, it is even uglier with the lowest New Orders since Jan 2014 as US Manufacturing data has missed 5 of the last 7 months and dropped for 5 months in a row – which hasn’t happened since 2008.
