Vice versa, under a hundred means pessimism. The consumers have a pessimistic point of view to the economic condition in the future. That is why; they choose to keep their money and reduce the shopping needs. 

Is that Release a Sign of Recession? 

Based on that release, it can be noted that many market participants are worrying if that is a sign of further recession. In fact, the economic slow down will inhibit the effort done by Federal Reserve.

This effort is related to a plan for raising the interest rate in order to handle the inflation progress. Elsewhere, the Dow Jones index was also lower. It declined by 1.56 percent. 

The same thing was also happened at the Asian stock market. One of them is IHSG BEI which this part was 0.77 percent lower based on the release. In the other place, the rally effort done by Euro isn’t that smooth.
