US ISM manufacturing index in the spotlight today as Dow futures claim 36k

As reported here earlier, there is no monthly US jobs report later today, but there is an equally important release due out later, at 3pm GMT. That is the latest Institute of Supply Management (ISM) manufacturing index. This report sure can rock the boat, if it holds any surprises. The impact of such can be seen in the dollar and the US stock markets. Of course much will depend on what data shows up later on, There will be more to add on what the exact expectations are on that later today. Meantime, the Dow Jones futures have risen above 36k this morning and are currently pricing a reopening above that level as I conclude this update
