In January the ISM’s (Institute for Supply Management) index hit a 9 month high of 53.1. According to Bloomberg, a reading of 52.5 is projected for Friday.
“The market, including investors in Europe, will all have their eyes on the U.S. economic data coming out later today including income and spending figures for January, in addition to the important ISM Manufacturing figure,” Peter Garnry at Saxo Bank said. “We expect good numbers from the U.S. and that could be the catalyst for a bounce-back later today.” (MarketWatch)
