United States Sales Managers Views Remain Positive in November. But Prices Rise Fast Again

6 December 2023
All US Sales Managers Indexes bar the Jobs Index registered modest growth in economic activity levels in November.

The Market and Sales Growth Indexes fell back from the buoyant conditions registered in October, reflecting an altogether more modest month's growth.

Business Confidence among sales managers similarly fell back from the generally optimistic views expressed in October to more cautious views on the likelihood of growth in economic activity over the next few months, including of course the festive season.

The Sales Managers Index, summarising these trends, consequently dipped well below the level registered in October, but remained well above the 50 "no growth" line.  See more data...
