U.S. PMI Data May Capture $10+ Movement In Gold

U.S. Manufacturing & Services PMI

U.S. will release manufacturing as well as services PMI data around 1345 GMT/1915 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 survey of about 800 purchasing managers which asks respondents to rate the relative level of business conditions including employment, production, new orders, prices, supplier deliveries, and inventories. If actual data comes higher than expected, it will be good for U.S. dollar. This time market has anticipated slightly lower reading than previous one.

Let’s see how gold has reacted during the previous data release:
