Manufacturin recession over ? Mazak Nexus Quick Turn 350II

Mazak Nexus Quick Turn 350II MY

The manufacturing sector had a perfect score for it’s recent evaluation.

GOLDMAN SACHS says it’s over !!

Ever since 2014 the collapse in the oil sector has really taken a toll on the manufactureres
of the Unites States. The rise of the dollar and being tied to the energy industry didn’t help things. there were a lot of surveys on key states like Philly, New Yord, Kansas, Dallas
and they all shows improvement in March !

Goldman Sachs prediction is that manufacturing pruchasing managers will finally
kick above 50, that level tears apart the ups and the downs. But they say recovery
will be very fragile.
