TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The IHS/Markit CIPS services purchasing managers’ business activity index fell to 50.2 from 51.0 in May, missing expectations for an unchanged reading a hitting a three-month low. The index came in just above the 50 mark that separates contraction from expansion.
Subdued activity was attributed to sluggish domestic economic conditions and greater risk aversion amid ongoing Brexit uncertainty. Reflecting this, there was a fractional decline in new business received by service sector companies, while lower volumes of new work have now been recorded in five of the past six months.
