ISM Non-Manufacturing: How Much to Dismiss?
[private]The headline ISM Non-Manufacturing index drops a more-than-expected 2.5 points, to 53.5 (Consensus: -0.5 point; Decision Economics: +0.4 point).
Obviously, the concern is that this big decline casts doubt on the positive indication given by the ISM manufacturing numbers earlier in the week. If the weak non-manufacturing number is dismissed as reflecting normal randomness, the strong manufacturing number is subject to the same attack.
