Germany continues to produce weak economic readings, weighing on investor confidence. The manufacturing sector continues to struggle, as Manufacturing PMI for November was the latest in a string of soft manufacturing releases. The global trade war has resulted in higher tariffs on German products, putting a damper on German exports and the manufacturing sector. As the largest economy in the eurozone, a slowdown in Germany is bad news for the entire eurozone, which has struggled in the second half of 2018.
