Performance of the global market

The flash manufacturing PMIs are economic indicators that show the market’s preliminary expectation for the manufacturing PMI for November 2017. These manufacturing PMI reports generally indicate how manufacturing is trending.

The performance of the global market depends on the performance of the above indicators and the performance of the major emerging market economic indicators. The iShares MSCI ACWI (ACWI) and the Vanguard Total Stock Market ETF (VTI), which tracks the performance of the global market, have risen 1.5% and 1.3%, respectively, so far in November 2017 as of November 24, 2017.
