U.S. ISM Services PMI Results

Today U.S. has schedule to release Trade Balance data at 1230 GMT/1800 IST and Services PMI results at 1400 GMT/1930 IST. The goods portion has a muted impact because it’s a duplicate of the Goods Trade Balance data released about 5 days earlier. A positive number indicates that more goods and services were exported than imported. While Services PMI is a leading indicator of economic health – businesses react quickly to market conditions, and their purchasing managers hold perhaps the most current and relevant insight into the company’s view of the economy. It is derived via a survey of about 300 purchasing managers which asks respondents to rate the relative level of business conditions including employment, production, new orders, prices, supplier deliveries, and inventories.

Let’s see how Gold has reacted during the preious data release:
