WASHINGTON (AP) - The Institute for Supply Management provides the day's only major piece of economic data this morning when it releases its service sector index for March.
ISM's February gauge showed higher sales and new orders pushed service companies to their fastest growth in a year, with the index of non-manufacturing activity hitting 56. The report measures growth in industries that cover 90 percent of the work force, including retail, construction, health care and financial services.
On the corporate earnings front, Monsanto is scheduled to report its latest quarterly results.
