2/8/2014: BRIC Manufacturing Rebound: July 2014

Summary of BRIC Manufacturing PMIs released yesterday:

Not that you'd notice from the mainstream media, but Russia's manufacturing is back above 50.0 in July after 8 consecutive months of below-50 readings.

A comfortable growth range for Russian Manufacturing PMIs should be around 53-55, so the economy is still miles away from a robust recovery. Further concern is that July 2014 reading might be similar to a spike in October 2013 that was followed by renewed contraction.
