The Prices Index remained very steady, at virtually no change on August, a reassuring figure given almost universal worries about resurgent inflation elsewhere in the world.
The Jobs Index fell from the 21 month high recoded in August, but seen over the last few months does appear to be gradually returning to more normal levels.
Perhaps the best news was provided by the 22 month high recorded by the Profits Index. Although continuing to reflect poor results in many companies, the steady climb from the unprecedented low levels seen in 2020 are likely to herald a revival in profitability in 2022.
