For Commodities Forecast: Follow This Sneaky Indicator

The purchasing managers’ index (PMI) forecasts future manufacturing conditions and activity by assessing forward-looking factors.

Get Ready for Commodity Liftoff: Global Manufacturing Just Made a HUGE Move!

We believe the real commodity liftoff should occur when the U.S., Europe, China & global PMIs all score above a 50.0, with the one-month readings above the three-month trends. Of those regions, China is the only one whose reading still trails below the 50.0 level. It’s crucial that China’s PMI move above 50.0, as the Asian giant is the top driver of global commodities demand.
