The Confederation of British Industry (CBI) Industrial Trends Orders measures the economic expectations of the manufacturing executives in the U.K. It is a leading indicator of business conditions. A level above zero indicates order volume is expected to increase; a level below zero indicates expectations are for lower volumes. The reading is compiled from a survey of about 550 manufacturers.
Not tier 1 data but all to throw in the mix.
Says the CBI:
- Both total order books and export order books were reported as being comfortably above normal levels in the three months to September.
- Total orders softened somewhat compared with August, reflecting lower volumes of orders among Mechanical Engineering firms in particular, though the trend was relatively broad-based with 9 of the 17 sub-sectors reporting a decline relative to August.
- Growth in the volume of output eased over the past three months, but remained strong. The slowdown was driven by the food and drink sector.
- Next quarter, total output growth is expected to accelerate, broadly matching the pace seen in the three months to August
