The Sales Managers Index: United States of America

The First Data on Economic Activity Levels in the United States - Every Month
Released: 22 July 2019

Canary in the Coalmine:
US Sales Managers Index at 29 Month Low

  • Headline Sales Managers' Index at 29 month low
  • Market Growth Index at 30 month low
  • Staffing Index falls to 33 month low
  • Business Confidence Index falls for third successive month
The absolute numbers of the Headline SMI, Business Confidence, Market and Sales Growth Indexes remain relatively high (all in the 53+ region; with Business Confidence still very high at 57.0, indicating plenty of animal spirits still alive and kicking).

However, the downward direction of most of the Indexes suggest strongly that the best days of the current decade long boom in economic activity are likely to be behind us.

The canary certainly hasn't died. But it is starting to look more than a little jaded...

The probability of recession in the US economy continues to increase.
