Details of the July 2016 US ISM manufacturing PMI data report 1 August 2016
Employment 49.4 vs 50.3 exp. Prior 50.4
New orders 56.9 vs 57.0 prior
Prices paid 55.0 vs 60.0 exp. Prior 60.5
A tad softer on the headline and employment slipping once again is not good news. New orders held up well enough though. USDJPY dropped a few pips to 102.21from around 102.35 but has recovered all that back. It seems there's little interest still.
Let's see how the ISM bods address this one.
