Fed's National Activity Index Plunges In May

Against expectations of a rise to +0.11, Chicago Fed's National Activity Index plunged to -0.51 (from a revised lower +0.05), hovering at its worst level since January 2014... Under the surface, things are ugly with only 28 of the 85 monthly individual indicators made positive contributions, while 57 indicators deteriorated.
