Construction spending going sideways

February construction spending was quite a bit weaker than expected, and, coupled with a downward revision to January figures, the uptrend that was emerging a month ago now looks less clear. I continue to believe, however, that we have seen the worst of the news for this sector and that conditions will gradually improve over the course of the year.
