US: NY Empire State Manufacturing Index slumps to -0.70 in January vs. expected drop to 25.70

  • Headline NY Fed Manufacturing Index fell to -0.70 in January, well below expectations for 25.70. 
  • The DXY saw some mild weakness in an immediate reaction. 

The headline General Business Conditions Index of the NY Fed's Empire State Manufacturing Survey slid to -0.70 in January, from December's 31.90 reading. That was much larger than the expected drop to 25.70 and marked the first time the reading had fallen into negative territory since June 2020.

Subindices:

  • The New Orders subindex fell to -5.0 in January from 27.1 in December. 
  • The Prices Paid subindex fell to 76.7 from 80.2. 
  • The Employment subindex fell to 16.1 from 21.4. 
  • The Six-month Business Conditions subindex remained elevated at 35.1 versus 36.4 the month prior.  

Market Reaction

The DXY has seen some modestly negative ticks in recent trade following the large miss on expectations in terms of the latest NY Fed survey, with the DXY recently falling back under 95.50.
