HSBC CHina flash pmi summary
HSBC flash pmi 23 September 2013

AUD/USD has jumped on the release, but there are plenty of sell orders around 0.9450 that should cap it, at least on the session, Japan is out and HK is trading in a reduced fashion due to the typhoon.

Australian dollar orders here. (note sellers at 0.9450)

This is the ‘flash’ survey, the final September result is due next Monday, the 30th – it is unlikely to vary much from today’s result, if at all.
