Data for week commencing 28 January 2019

Those predicting recession in the USA this year didn’t get a great round of data overnight to confirm their economic forecasting brilliance! The Yanks created, wait for it, 304,000 jobs in January, the ISM manufacturing reading rose to 56.6 (where any number over 50 means expansion is happening) and consumer sentiment went up to 91.2!

There’s still a lot of life left in Donald Trump’s U-S-A!
