  • The ISM non-manufacturing index jumped 11.7 points to 57.1, reflecting the broadening re-opening of the economy.
  • Mortgage applications for the purchase of a home rose 5.3% and are now running 33.2% ahead of their year-ago level. Refi-applications are up less, reflecting tighter underwriting.
  • Weekly first-time unemployment claims fell slightly more than expected and continuing claims have also come down the past two weeks, but claims for Pandemic Assistance have increased.
  • The producer price index (PPI) unexpectedly fell 0.2% in June and core PPI fell 0.3%. Both were expected to rise modestly.

  • The Euro zone reported an out sized gain in May retail sales, an outcome that could see a smaller decline and quicker rebound in GDP than previously expected.
