Markit 'flash' manufacturing PMI at 53.9

The seasonally-adjusted Markit flash US Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index rose to 53.9 in November, up from 53.4 in October.

November data highlighted a sustained acceleration in production growth across the US manufacturing sector, and the latest upturn was the fastest since early-2015.

Higher levels of output were supported by a continued rebound in new business volumes, with strong domestic demand helping to offset subdued export sales growth.
