The number is fine at 53.3.

That’s a hair worse than expectations, but better than last month’s 53.1.

The number seems pretty benign. Doesn’t look as though it will have any big market impact, although the Aussie dollar is sagging.

ORIGINAL POST: A quick reminder: Everybody needs to check back in at 9:00 PM ET tonight.

China will release its official PMI numbers for March.

They’ll be downloadable from this site.

Expectations are for a reading of 53.6, up from 53.1 last month.

Remember that there are two Chinese PMI numbers. Tomorrow we get the unofficial HSBC one.

Anyway, we’ll have the official number right here LIVE when it comes out.
