The Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City’s June Manufacturing Survey shows slowing activity in the 10th District, with the month-to-month composite index falling from 10 in May to six in June. The production, new orders, employment, and new orders for exports indexes also decreased, while the order backlog index hit a seven-month high.
