Growth in the manufacturing sector

The fall in the US (COMP-INDEX) manufacturing PMI score from October to November was mainly due to lower production output, new orders, and employment.

In November 2017, new order growth reached its second-highest level since March, possibly due to higher domestic and international demand. Export sales expanded at the second-highest rate seen in the last 15 months. However, export sales growth was moderate. Employment reached its second-highest growth rate since June 2015.

ETF performance in November

The SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY), which tracks the S&P 500 (SPX-INDEX), rose 3.1% in November 2017. The iShares Russell 2000 ETF (IWM), which tracks the performance of US small-capitalization stocks, rose 2.9%.
