Consensus Outlook
Continued overall strength is the expectation for March's flash PMIs which are all seen in a tight 55 range. The consensus for the PMI composite is 55.2 with PMI manufacturing at 55.3 and PMI services at 55.7. February's results showed strength in orders and hints of capacity stress including rising costs.

The flash Composite Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) provides an early estimate of current private sector output by combining information obtained from surveys of around 1,000 manufacturing and service sector companies. The flash data are released around 10 days ahead of the final report and are typically based upon around 85 percent of the full survey sample. Results are synthesized into a single index which can range between zero and 100. A reading above (below) 50 signals rising (falling) output versus the previous month and the closer to 100 (zero) the faster is output growing (contracting). The report also contains flash estimates of the manufacturing and services PMIs. The data are produced by Markit.  Why Investors Care
