PMI day is over.

Countries from around the world reported about how their manufacturing sectors performed in January.

This was measured in their purchasing manager’s index (PMI), a score created by Markit Economics that surveys executives in thousands of companies from the given country.

The surveys also contain data about employment, new orders and productivity.
