    FXStreet (Mumbai) - The Institute of Supply Management’s (ISM) non-manufacturing/services PMI index jumped to 59.1 in October from September’s 56.9. The actual print beats the estimated drop to 56.5 by a wide margin.

    The ISM’s measure of services employment advanced to 59.2, the second-highest since August 2005. The number is strong enough to counter the drop in the manufacturing sector employment highlighted by the ISM manufacturing report released on Monday.
