The higher inflation data follows comments made by the SNB's Jordan yesterday noting that the SNB will act if the weak Franc threatens stable prices, adding that the he sees the risk of a sudden, strong increase in prices. Despite the strong y/y reading remained below the SNB's key 2.0% level. The Swiss statistics office forecasted average inflation of 0.7% in 2007 and 1.5% in 2008, still below the key 2.0% level.

· FR Oct Manufacturing PMI: 50.5 v 50.0e

· The French manufacturing PMI, which was expected to decline in October, remained unchanged from September's reading at 50.5. Component wise, output declined to 50.7 fro m52.0 in September, while most of the other components posted gains.

· GE Oct Manufacturing PMI: 51.7 v 53.5e [Lowest since September 2005] || New orders component posts first decline since August 2005

· While all readings remained above the breakeven mark of 50, indicating continued expansion in the manufacturing sector, October PMI figures showed that the manufacturing sector is growing at a slower pace than is has in well over a year as the strong Euro began to weigh down on export orders, and as high energy prices have began to weigh down slightly on European economies in general.
