Another Scary Collapse Chart Out Of India

Indian industrial production grew just 0.1 per cent year-over-year (YoY) in April, and manufacturing which accounts for 75 per cent of the industrial output index also grew just 0.1 per cent.

The poor IP number was led by a 16.3 per cent YoY decline in capital goods, but on the positive side consumer sector growth rebounded 5.2 per cent YoY.

Now here’s a chart that shows the sharp decline in industrial production:
