Markit Purchasing Managers’ Index
The Markit PMI™ series are monthly economic surveys of carefully selected companies compiled by Markit. They provide advance insight into the private sector economy by tracking variables such as output, new orders, employment and prices across key sectors. Economic analysts, business decisionmakers, forecasters and policy makers leverage PMIs to better understand business conditions in any given economy. Central banks in many countries use the data to help make interest rate decisions, and analysts in the financial markets use PMI data to forecast official economic data.

Markit iTraxx indices allow investors to express their bullish or bearish sentiments on credit as an asset class and portfolio managers to actively manage their credit exposures.
