The only component that showed a meaningful improvement was US initial claims, which fell to a 49-year low today.

The largest declines came in the Japan IP inventory/sales ratio and the aggregate of the Australian and Canadian Dollar trade-weighted indices, both of which softened by roughly one standard deviation.

The global new orders less inventories component and Korean exports also worsened, with relatively minor moves in rest of the components.

Goldman’s GLI disappointment also confirms the recent collapse in G10 economic data relative to expectations…
