Chemical Activity a Potential Warning Sign to U.S. Economy

The Chemical Activity Barometer (CAB) from the American Chemistry Council (ACC) posted a 0.3% decline in November on a three-month moving average (3MMA) basis. This marks the barometer’s first month-over-month drop since February 2016 and adds to the chorus of growing concern of slowing U.S economic expansion. On a year-over-year basis the barometer is up 2.8% (3MMA), a marked slowdown in the pace of growth from earlier this year. The unadjusted measure of the CAB declined 0.8% in November and 0.6% in October.
