February 25, 2021

Economic tendency indicator came in at 103.6 in February, up from January’s 100.9. February's result marked the strongest sentiment since April 2019. Readings above 100 indicate stronger economic growth than normal, while readings below 100 indicate weaker economic growth than normal.
