In US economic data, the Markit Flash PMI was unchanged in September at 57.9 -- which was the highest since April 2010. Sub-indices were healthy, particularly the employment index, which lifted to 56.6 -- the highest since March 2012. US FHFA home prices rose by 0.1 per cent in July to be up 4.4 per cent over the year. The Richmond Fed index rose from 12 to 14 in September.
