Chicago PMI

Archives

Chicago PMI (Chicago Business Barometer) is a sentiment indicator, which measures the health of both manufacturing and non-manufacturing sectors of Illinois, Indiana, and Michigan by surveying the opinion of the supply and purchasing managers of private companies. It is one of the leading fundamental indicators. PMI values above 50 suggest an economic expansion. Readings under 50 signal possible contraction in the activity. Chicago PMI is reported monthly by the MNI Indicators (a part of Market News International Inc.) on the last business day of the current month. A better-than-expected report can push the US dollar up, while a worse-than-expected value usually turns to be a bearish signal for the currency. The posts listed below contain the Chicago PMI values from the reports since 2007.

Note: Do not confuse this indicator with ISM services PMI and ISM manufacturing PMI.
