Key Quotes

“Focus will be on the US ISM report. Last month’s report came out very strong,reaching a three-year high level of 57.1”.

“Comments were decent, although a weak European market and the geopolitical tension present some risk”.

“On the other hand, a very high order-inventory balance suggests that the ISM index could maintain its high level”.

“Overall, we expect the ISM to adjust slightly downward to 56.7, which is still a very high level”.
