ORIGINAL POST: Fear not: The Economic Super Bowl continues.At 10:00 AM ET, we get the May ISM manufacturing report.

It’s the final big manufacturing survey of the day.

Analysts expect a reading of 53.8, a number that’s down from last month’s 54.8, but still signaling expansion.

We’ll have the number here LIVE at 10:00 AM ET.

UPDATE: Kind of a snoozer. ISM Manufacturing came in at 53.5 vs. expectations of 53.8.

The good news is that the number is holding up.

The bad news is that it’s just one datapoint and nobody cwill care.
