Thai Manufacturing Conditions Deteriorate In February

Operating conditions in Thailand's manufacturing sector deteriorated in February, survey results from IHS Markit showed Monday.

The manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index fell to 49.5 in February from 49.9 in January. A score below 50 indicates contraction.

Lower sales contributed to a decline in backlogs of work which, in turn, dampened hiring. Employment decreased for the seventeenth consecutive month.

Meanwhile, inventories of both input and finished goods shrank further. On the price front, the survey data showed subdued price pressures in February.

Business confidence remained subdued with concerns of weakening economic conditions, declining profits and the impact of the coronavirus outbreak weighing on growth.

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.
