Weakness in US Industrials can often be a signal that we are close to a period of market disruption. That signal is flashing yellow, as are the signals from other equity regions such as the UK, the Eurozone and Japan. We have red flags on Industrials across all of our credit models. We don’t have a clear and obvious cause yet, but the simplest explanation could be that we are closer to a significant slowdown than consensus thinks.
