Flash Manufacturing PMI

AAA

DEFINITION of 'Flash Manufacturing PMI'

An estimate of the Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) for a country, based on about 85% of total PMI survey responses each month. It is intended to provide an accurate advance indication of the final PMI data. Because flash PMIs are among the first economic indicators for each month and provide evidence of changing economic conditions ahead of comparable government statistics, they can have a significant effect on currency markets.
