Malaysian manufacturing conditions deteriorate further in April

GBPUSD Falls to 4 Month Low After Weak UK Manufacturing PMI

As a result, pre-production inventories grew slightly in April.

The Markit/CIPS UK Manufacturing purchasing managers' index (PMI) showed a reading of 53.9, lower than the 54.9 recorded in March. The latest reading was the highest since November 2017 and signalled a moderate expansion of overall construction output.

Activity rose at its fastest pace for five months, with residential house-building showing the strongest growth since May 2017. Survey respondents widely commented on the resumption of housebuilding activity following snow disruptions in March. Although the rate of job creation eased to its lowest since last August, it remained well above the long-run survey average. Although modest, the rate of expansion accelerated since March.

Indian manufacturers faced higher input costs during April, thereby extending the current period of inflation to just over two-and-a-half years. "However, the picture was less positive in other areas of construction, with commercial building and civil engineering work rising only marginally".

Similarly, the report showed that the manufacturing supplier delivery time index stood at 57.4 points in April 2018, indicating faster supplier delivery time for the 11th consecutive month. Optimism reflected expectations that new business and demand conditions will improve over the coming 12 months, according to panellists. "Lacklustre economic activity in some sectors of the economy (such as retail) has also weighed down on construction, as has a shortage on new infrastructure projects".

"The headline PMI dipped to a 17-month low as growth of production, new business and employment all slowed".

Asylum seekers denied United States entry for 2nd day
Erika Guevara-Rosas, Americas director at Amnesty International, noted that seeking asylum is a human right, not a crime. KAHN: "Because they threatened me and also my sister", she says, "and my cousin, mother and stepfather", she adds.

In particular, output and new orders declined at an accelerated pace during the month, reflecting lackluster demand from both domestic and worldwide markets on the back of ebbing economic growth.

"The effects of the previous month's bad weather were echoed in April as supply chains stayed under the cosh again. But uncertainty in exports has increased significantly, and the dependence of the Chinese economy on domestic demand is rising", said Zhong Zhengsheng, director of Macroeconomic Analysis at CEBM Group. The contraction quickened to a solid pace that was the fastest since the end of 2017.
