The ISM non-manufacturing index came in at 58.6% for the month of August, 2.6% higher than 56.0% registered in July and substantiality ahead of the consensus estimate of 55.0%.  

This reading is the highest reading for the index since the creation of the index in January 2008.

Here are further details from the report:

This report, combined with mixed-to-positive labor markets reports earlier this morning and a solid ISM manufacturing report earlier this week, proves that the economic recovery continues to gain momentum.

The 10-year note yield has surged to 2.97 % this morning.

Do you think that the market has already priced in a QE tapering ($10 billion to $15 billion) starting this month?
