National Trade Credit Report

 Showing a modest increase,  January's economic report from the National Association of Credit Management continues its roller coaster ride, dropping from 53.9 to 52.6.

Despite market volatility, economic indicators such as the January report of the National Association of Credit Management (NACM) can be added to the other lists of data sources such as housing, employment and manufacturing that have been pointing in a positive direction, according to NACM Economist Chris Kuehl, Ph.D.

A combined reading of 53.5 up from December’s 52.8, “puts the numbers back to what they were in October of last year … the trend is certainly in the right direction of late,” Kuehl explained.

The favorable categories gained just over 1.5 points, while the unfavorable categories remained even at 50.3. Kuehl noted that, “The data on the unfavorable categories are not as encouraging, but at least the big declines seem to have come to an end for now. Those under 50 are now at four and last month only three dipped into the contraction zone showing that there are still many companies in some economic distress.”

“In general, the CMI report [for manufacturing] is more upbeat than has been the case in the recent past,” said Kuehl. However, as regards a two-point drop in the rejections of credit applications, “There are companies that are in trouble right now and seek someone to throw them a lifeline by offering credit when that would likely be a bad idea. Many of the companies are not offering that credit rescue these days and thus reject a lot of the applications that are coming in.” Like manufacturing, the service sector had a modest upward trend with the favorable factors breaking the 60 barrier.
