We have just published the ASR Global Macro NewsFlow Indicators for January 2024. The latest month saw another setback for our indicator which has fallen more than 5 points from the three months’ ago. Moreover, the weakness of the Revenues NewsFlow subcomponent also suggests downside risks to Global nominal GDP and US corporate revenue growth.
