ISM rises in September; construction report cancelled due to shutdown

An index of factory activity showed moderate expansion in September.

Economists were expecting the Institute of Supply Management's index of national factory activity to tick lower in September to 55.0 from 55.7 the month before.

The Commerce Department's construction spending report, which had been expected at 10 a.m., will likely be cancelled due to the government's partial shutdown, Dow Jones reported.

A department spokeswoman said Monday the construction report wouldn't be released 10 a.m. Tuesday in the event of a shutdown.
