Scoreboard: American muscle

Wall Street ended mixed as strong manufacturing and construction data had investors worrying about higher interest rates, while oil and gold came under pressure.

In US economic data, the ISM manufacturing index rose from 57.1 to a three-and-a-half-year high of 59.0 in August, well above forecasts of 56.8. And construction spending rose by 1.8 per cent in July, above forecasts for a 1 per cent gain and to a five-and-a-half-year high.
