Market Review

DAILY MARKET OVERVIEW
Today's Top Market Headlines – Jan 5, 2017
Markets digest new UK services survey

UK’s services purchasing managers’ index from Markit/CIPS for December was released at 9:30 GMT. The Markit Services PMI which captures an overview of the condition of sales and employment, hit a 17-month high of 56.2 in December, up from 55.2. It should be noted that anything above the 50 mark indicates expansion. It should also be noted that the British Chambers of Commerce said Thursday that the economy has kept its momentum in the last quarter of 2016 but inflation pressures have increased at a near 20-year high.
The sister surveys for manufacturing and construction showed both sectors growing, suggesting that U.K.’s economy was stronger than many had anticipated after the Brexit referendum. The Irish services PMI also indicated that the nations
s services sector rebounded in December. Specifically, the Investec services PMI for Ireland rose to a five-month high of 59.1 in December compared to 56 in November. Markets will also be closely watching tomorrow’s non-farm payrolls report which is expected to show a drop from November’s 216,000 figure to about 175,000.
