The Philly Fed rises sharply but the US GDP disappoints :

On the economic calendar, we have just read a series of publications.

The manufacturing index of Philadelphia dates back to 26.2 from 22.7, while the consensus anticipated a decline to 21.5.

For its part, the new estimate of GDP in Q3 shows a surprise downward correction to 3.2% against 3.3% expected and previously. That still remains a solid rate of GDP growth.

Lastly, weekly US jobless claims, which are less important on the economic calendar, stand at 245k against 231k expected and 225k previously.

On the Forex, the Dollar remains fairly neutral, including EUR / USD which still holds the support area of 1.1860 / 1.1850.
