The Markit manufacturing sector purchasing managers' index for the month of March has come in at 46.6, versus 47.9 for the month before (Consensus: 48.2). In parallel, the service sector gauge dropped to 46.5 from 47.9 (Consensus: 48.2). Particularly worthy of being mentioned are the very weak readings seen in Germany. The above has trumped the unfolding crisis in Cyprus as the main driver of the market this morning. T
