It did not do better nor did it do worse. This figure matched the forecast, hence Shanghai composite increase a bit only. Asia market quite stagnant overall now. Probably in anticipation of tonight ISM report from US and PMI report from Europe.
A good report from US is needed for STI to stand above 3000, Dow Jones above 13000 firmly.
Btw, Yesterday US Chicago PMI showed an excellent result. Actual result 64.0, exceeds forecast of 61.6. I think good chance that today's ISM can exceed also.
