This week holds fist full of market shifting data, which NFP’s will be closely monitored in the US affecting the pair. First up, today comes ISM Manufacturing at 15.00 hrs BST. Research teams at TD Securities explained that the Markets expect the ISM to slip from 50.7 to 50.5 while we expect a stronger reading of 51.3, and after the massive 9.7pt jump in the Chicago PMI on Friday (the largest M/M gain since 1983), we think that the risks lie toward an even larger upside surprise.
