U.S. Economy: ISM Manufacturing Index Indicates Contraction

We got the ISM Manufacturing number. The prior month we had a bounce backhand everyone was excited about that, up at 52.60. Now the index collapsed to 49.40. That is a horrible number. Anything below 50 indicates contraction.  (Select Sector Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF), SPDR S&P 500 Index ETF (SPY), iShares Russell 2000 Index ETF (IWM), SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF (DIA))
