20080908 MCI Biweekly Update

Between August 25, 2008 to September 5, 2008, the MCI index slumped from 5994.7 to 5555.3, down by another whopping 439.5 points. Since the launch of the MCI index on Jan 1, 2003 by WitsView, the last time the index was near the 5500 level only occurred during 2003. Thus, if we exclude this particular year, the current TFT LCD market confidence level is now lower than all the previous market cycles.
