ISM Manufacturing PMI, which was published yesterday, demonstrated the slowing down in the US economy in August. The index dropped below 50 and was released at 49.1. We recommend to pay attention to two factors:
Employment decreased to 47.4. We remind you that this Friday we are waiting for NFP statistics.
Inventories increased to 49.9. Thus it reflects that the economy may be worsening.
