This indicator reflects the economic situation of a country. While it’s just a survey of purchasing managers in the manufacturing industry, their answers tend to show the overall views on the current business conditions within a country. If the indicator is above 50, it demonstrates the expansion of an industry, while an indicator below 50 signals a contraction. Last time an indicator came out at a lower-than-expected level. As a result, the USD fell. What awaits the currency this time?
• If the actual level of indicator is higher than the forecasts, the USD will go up;
• If the actual level of indicator is lower than the forecasts, the USD will go down.
Riskier currencies and stocks are in favor of investors. Surprisingly, gold rallies too. Let’s have a closer look.
Congratulations! Gold has just opened a new era... or, rather, reopened...
