The IHS Markit US Services PMI came in at 54.8 in October 2018, almost unchanged from a preliminary reading of 54.7 and above the previous month's eight-month low of 53.5. Output growth regained momentum after September’s weather-related weakness driven by a sharp expansion in new business amid more favorable demand conditions and new product launches. Meanwhile, the pace of job creation eased to a nine-month low mainly due to difficulties finding suitable candidates. Therefore, capacity pressures remained, with backlogs rising further. On the price front, input cost inflation quickened to the fastest since September 2013 and the rate of charge inflation was the second-highest in the nine-year series history. The level of optimism improved to a five-month high in October. Services PMI in the United States is reported by Markit Economics.
