- Back in early July, China's June Manufacturing PMI data was only the first of a string of weak economic data that drove equity markets to eight-month lows. Yesterday's July China Manufacturing PMI was even worse than the June data, with the reading pushing out to 17-month lows. However, investors worldwide are looking at the data as one more reason
China is unlikely to be overly aggressive in withdrawing stimulus and or raising rates anytime soon. Global markets are seeing healthy risk appetite by investors. The narrowly better than expected July US ISM Manufacturing Index and faint June Construction Spending growth is also helping push the DJIA out to 17-week highs. As the week progresses the focus should shift to the US July payrolls data set for release on Friday, which could set the tone for the balance of the summer. Crude is breaking out to multi-month highs, with the front month contract above $81 and its 200-day moving averages. Copper continues to break higher as well above $3.35 to levels not seen in nearly 4 months. In a speech this morning Fed Chairman Bernanke warned that deflation was a major cause of the Great Depression and said the FOMC should be wary of tightening policy too soon. Treasury markets are seeing some selling sending the benchmark 10-year note future down about a quarter of a point. Yields are having a hard time making headway though with the 10-year still below 2.95% and the long bond just a handful of basis points above 4%.

- Health insurance name Humana crushed earnings expectations and raised its FY10 outlook slightly. Health insurers have raised their outlooks after posting higher-than-expected profits during this reporting season, helped by generally lower use of medical services. Lowes came in ahead of expectations, while earnings at the company's main subsidiary were down y/y, thanks to lower net written premiums. Heavy vehicle manufacturer
Oshkosh had a very strong third quarter and offered bullish forward-looking comments. Oshkosh's CEO said Q4 would be equally strong, with revenue higher in FY11. In other news, shares of Omnicare fell nearly 9% before recovering slightly following the retirement of its CFO, just ahead of its Q2 earnings report, which is due later this week on 8/5.

- EUR/USD is around fresh three-month highs above 1.3190 and GBP/USD is moving close to fresh six-month highs above the 1.5890 level. Commodity-related currencies followed the higher oil prices as NYMEX WTI contract moved above $82/barrel.
