TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The IHS Markit/BME Germany Manufacturing PMI was revised slightly lower to 56.4 in September 2020, from a preliminary estimate of 56.6 and compared to August’s 52.2. Still, the latest reading pointed to the steepest expansion in the sector since July 2018 as the economy continued to recover from the pandemic shock. New order growth was among the strongest recorded since data collection began in 1996, with new export orders rising the most since December 2017 amid reports of improved demand across Europe, China and Turkey. In addition, output increased the most in more than two-and-a-half years, while the rate of job shedding eased for the second month in a row. Purchasing activity growth was the fastest seen since February 2018. On the price front, both input costs and output charges fell. Looking ahead, business optimism reached the highest since January 2018, amid signs of clients upping spending and growing hopes of a post COVID-19 recovery in market demand.
