The Ivey PMI or Ivey Purchasing Managers Index is a result of a survey sponsored by the Richard Ivey School of Business and the Purchasing Management Association of Canada. The survey involves 175 participants. The purchasing managers are carefully selected among different regions and sectors (public and private) to match the Canadian economy as a whole.

Purchasing managers are asked about the activity of their organization. They indicate whether this activity or their purchases, in each of the following categories: purchases, employment, inventories, supplier deliveries and prices, are higher, lower or the same as the previous month. The data is compiled and an index for each category, as well as a general index, is created.
An index value above 50 indicates that purchases have increased from the previous month and an index value below 50 indicates that purchases have decreased from the previous month.

An increase in organization purchases and spending is a good sign for the economy. Generally, firms increase spending if they are optimistic and if they expect the demand to grow. Thus, the PMI index is used to measure business optimism.

This item downloads five indexes from the Richard Ivey School of Business website (www.ivey.uwo.ca). There are no adjustments made to the data.
The indices data are retrieved and associated with five symbols:
^IVEY_PMI_INDEX: Ivey Purchasing Managers Index - Ivey PMI.
^IVEY_PMI_INVENTORIES: Ivey Inventories Index
^IVEY_PMI_PRICES: Ivey Prices Index
^IVEY_PMI_DELIVERIES: Ivey Deliveries Index
^IVEY_PMI_EMPLOYMENT: Ivey Employment Index

A similar index for the United States, called the Manufacturing Purchasing managers Index, is released by The Institute of Supply Management.
The PMI Index provided by the Institute of Supply Management is adjusted for seasonality, which is not the case for the Ivey PMI Index (Purchasing Management Association of Canada).

The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
