United States

Services PMI by Markit – preliminary reading

Activity in the US sector of services probably increased at a faster rate in June from a month ago, with the corresponding preliminary Purchasing Managers Index coming in at a reading of 55.5, according to a projection by Trading Economics. In May the services PMI was reported at a final 51.3, improving from a preliminary reading of 51.2. According to Markit, in May new business growth slowed, backlogs of work dropped, while payrolls grew at the lowest rate since January 2015.

The PMI is based on data collected from a representative panel of more than 400 private sector companies, which encompasses industries such as transport and communication, financial intermediaries, business and personal services, computing & IT and hotels & restaurants. Values above the key level of 50.0 indicate predominant optimism (expansion in general activity). In case a faster than-expected expansion in services sector activity is reported, this would have a moderate bullish effect on the US dollar, as services contribute to a considerable portion of the US GDP. The preliminary reading by Markit Economics is due out at 13:45 GMT on Monday.
