HSBC Emerging Markets Index Falls From 51.7 to 51.2 But Manufacturing Was Up
The HSBC Emerging Markets Index (EMI), a monthly indicator derived from the Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) surveys conducted by HSBC and Markit, fell back from December’s three-month high of 51.7 to 51.2, the joint-lowest since last May. The overall slowdown was driven by the weakest expansion in services activity in eight months. However, manufacturing output growth picked up to the fastest since August.
