Purchasing Managers Index (PMI)

The indicator reflects the level of business activity of the industrial sector. If after a period of strengthening PMI begins to show decline, it anticipates the turn of the business cycle, downward and collapse of industrial activity. If the PMI after reaching a minimum turns upwards, it is a sign of future recovery.
