Malaysia Manufacturing PMI Turns To Contraction

The manufacturing sector in Malaysia slipped into contraction territory in January, the latest survey from IHS Markit revealed on Monday with a manufacturing PMI score of 48.8.

That's down sharply from 50.0 in December, and it moves beneath the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.

Individually, manufacturing output was hit by a drop in export demand, while firms cut input purchases amid strong input cost inflation.

However, businesses largely retained an optimistic view towards future output in the coming months.

Trading in leveraged currency contracts comes with substantial risk. You must be aware of these risks before opening an account to trade. High leverage amplifies gains as well as losses, leading to potential loss of the entire account balance. Trading in leveraged currency contracts may not be suitable for every investor. Never speculate using money that you cannot afford to lose.
