For the first time since February 1989, the number of US dollars in circulation decreased from the previous month. That news sent the dollar index screaming higher, diminishing US export prospects.
Purchasing Managers Index (PMI = how much businesses expect to buy next month compared to previous month) for the UK (45.3) was the lowest since May 2009 and much lower than expected. China’s PMI (47.0) was disappointing. PMI news sent crude oil smartly lower which added pressure to soybeans.
