ISM Services: Services PMI Composite Index

The Service
Sector
Risk
Level
The Service Sector continued
• Service sector confidence fell in April, as the index dropped
from 51.4 in March to 49.4 in April.
• This marks three consecutive months of falling confidence.
• This decline brought the index into contractionary territory for
the first time since December 2022.
• We have downgraded this indicator to red due to the index's
decline into contractionary territory.

Private Employment: Annual Change continued
• 175,000 jobs were added in April, following an upwardly
revised 315,000 jobs in March.
• This marks 40 consecutive months of job growth, highlighting
the current health of the labor market despite the challenges
created by inflation and the tight labor supply.

Level
Yield Curve (10-Year Minus 3-Month Treasury Rates)
continued
• The yield curve inversion narrowed in April, due to a rise in
long-term interest rates. The 10-year Treasury yield rose from
4.20% to 4.69%.
• The 3-month Treasury yield ended the month unchanged
at 5.46%.
• This marks 19 consecutive months with an inverted
3-month 10-year yield curve. While this doesn’t guarantee that
the economy will enter a recession, it’s a widely monitored
technical signal that could indicate further slowdowns.

Consumer Confidence: Annual Change continued
• Consumer confidence fell from 103.1 in March to 97.0 in April.
• Consumer confidence fell 6.46 percent on a year-over-year
basis in April, marking two consecutive months of declining
year-over-year confidence.
• Given the continued year-over-year decline, we have
downgraded this indicator to yellow with the potential for
further downgrades ahead.
Risk
Level
Conclusion: Slower Economic Growth Ahead
• The data releases in April showed signs of continued but slower
economic growth.
• The strong hiring growth was a positive development.
• Given the declines during the month, service sector and
consumer confidence are worth monitoring going forward.
• The path of recovery remains uncertain in the short term, and
caution is still warranted.
