Key Quotes:

The Oct China services PMI from Markit/Caixin is due at 12:45pm Syd/9:45am Sing/HK. The Sep headline index was 53.1.

The US Oct non-manufacturing ISM survey is the key release, though somewhat in the shadow of Friday’s employment report, which it sometimes precedes. The Sep overall index was an extremely high 61.6, so some degree of pullback would not be of concern.”
