More on the Markit PMI (the ISM read is set for 10 ET): The 52.8 print is the highest level in 6 months and ahead of the flash read of 52.4. Of particular note are New Export Orders, which jumped to 50.3 from 47.2, the first time in expansion in 6 months. "The boost in the figures can also be partly attributed to new work resulting from Hurricane Sandy," says Markit.
