EUR/USD’s rally has been held up. After that employment data from the US that disappointed, we then got a very robust ISM manufacturing index. It rose to 57.1 in July from 55.3 in June, which gives us the index at its highest level since April 2011. James Knightley, analyst at ING explained, “This backs up our positive assessment on the US economy and our view that the labour market will continue to strengthen, inflation pressures will build, the dollar will rally a lot further and the Fed will tighten earlier than the market currently anticipates”.
