Having surged to its highest levels since 1984 in February, Philly Fed’s Manufacturing survey (soft data) has collapsed in the last two months (biggest drop since Jan 2015). The 22.00 print mised expectations and was the lowest since Dec 2016 amid a big slump in new orders and shipments.

The index for current manufacturing activity in the region decreased from a reading of 32.8 in March to 22.0 this month.
