This manufacturing data is not supportive of a sustainable rise in the equity
markets; however, the markets seem to have their own agenda, regardless of the
fundamentals of this sector within the slowing economy. A slowing demand for the

useful, and beneficial products/services with "needed and must-have" value,
become a ship without a captain.
