20080825 MCI Biweekly Update

Between August 11, 2008 to August 22, 2008, the MCI index plunged from 6210.6 to 5912.2, down by 298.5 points. Although the index fell past the 6000 level, reaching the “very low confidence level” of WitsView’s new MCI confidence scale, this is expected to be only temporary. In the near future, the index should bounce back to the above 6000 level.
