Manufacturing and services data from Markit
- Prior was 55.3
- Manufacturing PMI 53.8 vs 55.0 expected
- Prior manufacturing index was 54.6
- Composite index 54.6 vs 55.2 prior
The numbers were on the soft side but they're still solidly in expansionary territory. This survey has diverged a bit from some other US economic data, which has been very strong.
