We cannot count on the strong release in terms of the France manufacturing sector strong reduction. The US producer price index data can also reach the level of the forecasted medians amid the "bears’ rally" on the oil futures market. The consumer sentiment index by the University of Michigan can also be at the consensus forecast.
