An easing in manufacturing but a decent gain in services. More importantly, there’s news on inflation;

Costs also rose more quickly in the services economy, pushing the overall rate of input price inflation to its highest since April 2011. Businesses passed on higher costs in the form of increased selling prices for goods and services, which also rose at the fastest rate for close to seven years. Factory gate price inflation was in fact the second-fastest on record, while the increase in service sector charges was the quickest in ten months.

EURUSD not doing anythingaround 1.2320.
