RISK ON: Chinese PMI And Australian GDP Give Markets A Boost

Maybe tomorrow the bulls will get the victory they thought they might have today.

Australian GDP just came out and at a pace of 1.2%, it was ahead of expectations of 0.9% (according to ForexLive).

And Chinese PMI of 51.7 was ahead of expectations of 51.5 and 51.2 last month, according to Bloomberg.

US futures are clearly getting a jolt this evening.
