3 PMI Charts We Can't Wait To See Today

In a few hours, PMI day begins, and we’ll get fresh manufacturing surveys from around the world.

There are three charts we’re particularly excited about seeing.

The next chart, of course, is US PMI. What’s remarkable is that mostly it’s diverged from the European ones, and has somehow held up steady.

We’re about to get a good test of whether that outperformance has continued.

And then, finally, we’re excited to see German PMI specifically, since it really looks like the German economy is on the verge of cracking.
