The Commonwealth Bank Manufacturing PMI in Australia edged down to 51.3 in August 2019 from 51.6 in the previous month and compared with market expectations of 51.0, a preliminary estimate showed. The reading pointed to the weakest expansion in factory activity since May, amid modest increases in output, new orders and employment. On a more positive note, exports rose for the first time in three months. Regarding prices, the rate of input cost inflation accelerated, and was the sharpest since last November, mainly to weakness of the Australian dollar. On the other hand, output prices were raised to a slightly lesser extent than in July. Industrial Sentiment in Australia is reported by Markit Economics.
