US ISM Non-Manufacturing Index Falls But Shows Labor Market Strength

US ISM Non-Manufacturing Index Falls But Shows Labor Market Strength

Kevin Jin,

THE TAKEAWAY: USD ISM Non-Manufacturing (JUN) > 52.2 versus 54.0 expected, from 53.7 > USDCAD BEARISH

US ISM Non-Manufacturing Index (JUN) comes in at 52.2, below the Bloomberg News survey expected 54.0, and below May’s 53.7 figure. This is the third below expectations ISM Non-manufacturing print in the last four months, which slightly hints at a slowing US services sector. On the other hand, recall that on Monday, the ISM Manufacturing Index marginally beat Bloomberg News survey expectations (50.9 actual; 50.5 expected).

While the ISM data today comes in lower than expected, the reading is not entirely bad. The employment component of the index shows a moderate expansion (54.7 June; 50.1 May). A review of other recent US employment data paints a mixed picture for Friday’s important Non-farm Payrolls reading. On Monday, the employment component of the ISM Manufacturing Index contracted to 48.7 (June), from 50.1 (May). Today, labor data is optimistic: ADP Employment Change (June): +188K actual; +160K Bloomberg News survey expected; +134K prior (revised down from +135K). Initial Jobless Claims (June 29) also indicate labor market decency: +343K actual; +345 Bloomberg News survey expected; +348K prior (revised up from +346K).
