U.S. ISM Manufacturing PMI Results

Today U.S. has scheduled to release Manufacturing PMI data at 1400 GMT/1930 IST. It’s 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. This data 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. If the actual data comes above 50.0, it indicates industry expansion or below indicates contraction.
