What data went to the markets today?

The first day of the new week was not particularly saturated with key economic data. All eyes were on inflation data in Turkey, which turned out to be at 17.9% yoy or above average market expectations of 17.1%.

Otherwise, early in the morning from Australia, data on the business activity index in the manufacturing sector became a reality - at a level of 56.7 points or well above the average expectations of 52.1 points, as well as for retail sales. The latter reported zero growth, with an expected increase of 0.3%.

The index for business activity in the manufacturing sector also came out for Japan, at a level of 52.5 points, the indicator fully responding to the average expectations of the experts.

The same index was also exported to other countries, such as Sweden, Norway, Spain and Italy, with all of them outperforming the average.

A little below expectations was the activity in the manufacturing sector in Italy, France and Germany. For the euro area, the indicator stood at 54.6 points or the average expectations.

A whole point below expectations was the activity in the manufacturing sector in the UK - at 52.8 points.

In the afternoon, more substantial data for the United States will be missing.
