The Philly Fed said its diffusion index for current general activity at the firm level fell to a negative 2.3 in March from a positive 0.8 in February.

The index turned negative for the first time since last October, with a negative reading indicating a decline in non-manufacturing activity in the region.

The report also said the full-time employment index slid to 3.5 in March from 9.1 in February, hitting its lowest level since last June
