A slight, sliver of non-horribleness for you on this gloomy day in the markets.

The final Eurozone manufacturing PMI reports from Markit were actually all slightly better than initial estimates made last month.

Italy was up to 48.3 vs. 47 last month.

France clocked in at 47.2 vs. a preliminary estimate of 47.3.

Germany was 50.3 vs. initial estimates of 50.

For total Europe, the number was 48.5 vs. preliminary estimates of 48.4.

So, nothing amazing (at all), but, you know, green shoots!
