TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The IHS Markit Germany Construction PMI fell to 45.5 in September of 2020 from 48 in August, pointing to a fresh setback for the construction sector as activity contracted at a faster pace. This was the lowest reading for three months, although it remained notably higher than those seen between March and June. The main drag was from the commercial building sub-sector, where work fell sharply and at the fastest rate for three months. Civil engineering activity also remained in contraction, albeit with the decline easing to the weakest since February. The only bright spot was housing activity, though even here data showed the softest growth for three months. Furthermore, amid an ongoing decline in new orders and pessimistic expectations for activity over the year ahead, building companies continued to scale back workforce numbers during the month.
