United States: Moody's Analytics Policy Uncertainty Index
The four-week moving average in our U.S. policy uncertainty index edged higher, rising from 143 to 143.5 in the week ended August 30. The four-week moving average had been trending higher since the trade tensions between the U.S. and China took a turn for the worse in early May. The trade tensions are clearly on businesses' minds, as references to trade uncertainty in the Fed's Beige Book remain high. Also, the Challenger Report noted that trade difficulties led businesses to lay off more than 10,000 workers in August.

United States: ISM Manufacturing Index
For the first time since the end of the energy rout, the U.S. manufacturing sector is contracting. The ISM manufacturing index fell from 51.2 in July to 49.1 in August, the lowest reading since January 2016 and below the 50 threshold that is consistent with expansion. The details were generally downbeat. The new orders, production and employment indexes all slipped below 50. The supplier deliveries index also declined, but this is an improvement that indicates a softer slowdown in deliveries. The inventories index increased slightly but also remained below the 50 threshold. The good news is that the ISM manufacturing index remains well above its recession threshold of 42.9.

United States: GDP
U.S. GDP growth slowed in the second quarter, according to the advance report from the Bureau of Economic Analysis. Real GDP grew 2.1%, after growing 3.1% in the first quarter after annual revision. The weakening came despite an acceleration in consumer spending growth as inventory accumulation slowed, the trade deficit widened, and fixed investment fell. Real disposable income growth slowed to 2.5% from a revised 4.4%. The saving rate fell to 8.1%, from a revised 8.5%. Revisions showed faster GDP growth in 2017, but similar annual growth in other years.

United States: Kansas City Fed Manufacturing Survey
Manufacturing conditions in the 10th District weakened slightly in July with factory activity contracting for the first time since August 2016. The composite index has decreased in four consecutive months. The details were generally unchanged from the previous reading. Production levels and order backlogs remained negative, and readings for employment and the average employee workweek entered negative territory this month. Price indexes for raw materials increased from last month and from a year earlier, while prices for finished products are largely unchanged. Expectations of future manufacturing conditions continue to weaken but remain positive overall.

United States: Existing-Home Sales
Thanks to falling mortgage rates, existing-home sales for May recovered some of the pace that was lost in March and April. Total sales increased 2.5% for the month but are still down 1.1% from May 2018. Listings were able to keep up with the increase so that the inventory-to-sales ratio stayed level. Also, the increase in sales was uniform between single-family and condo/co-op homes. The May increase in sales was spread out, with all four census regions recording good sales increases for the month.

United States: Regional and State Employment
State and regional employment numbers for May provide more evidence of increasing business caution in response to slower economic growth and rising trade risks. The data do not show worrying signs of weakening in the labor market at this point, but there is broad slowing in job growth across regions at a time when most state economies are operating at or beyond full employment. In May, fewer states reported higher unemployment and lower unemployment. Year-over-year job growth is strongest in Nevada (4%), followed by Utah and Washington (2.8% each). Vermont had the lowest unemployment rate, at 2.1%, and Texas and Vermont set new lows for the series dating back to 1976.

The St. Louis Fed Financial Stress Index increased for the third straight week as the U.S.-China trade war continued to weigh on market sentiment. The stress index rose 1 basis point to -1.24 for the week ended May 24. Selling in U.S. equity markets intensified last week, with the Standard & Poor's 500 falling 1.2%. The fear of a global economic slowdown is driving investors to safer assets, including U.S. Treasuries. The two-year Treasury yield fell 4 basis points to 2.16%, while the 10-year Treasury yield fell 7 basis points to 2.32%. Measures of corporate credit risk were negative.

The Moody's Delinquency Tracker total delinquency rate for commercial mortgage-backed securities declined 10 basis points to 3.53% in April. The decrease in delinquencies stemmed mainly from retail for the month. Three of the six property types declined, two held steady and one inched upward. Additionally, all regional delinquency rates, except the East, fell in April. Meanwhile, payoffs and dispositions outweighed new issuance in the month, decreasing the total balance of CMBS conduit loans.

World: Moody's Analytics Survey of Business Confidence
President Trump's escalation of the trade war with China did not damage global business sentiment, at least according to last week's business survey results. Global sentiment is soft but has stabilized in recent weeks, consistent with a global economy that is growing below its potential. Of course, this bears close watching the longer it takes for the U.S. and China to come to some arrangement and end the tit-for-tat tariff increases.
