TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The IHS Markit Germany Manufacturing PMI increased to 58 in October of 2020 from 56.4 in September and well above market expectations of 55.1. The reading pointed to the strongest expansion in factory activity since April of 2018, preliminary estimates showed. Stronger growth of factory output and new orders, a slower fall in stocks of purchases, and a greater lengthening of input delivery times drove the expansion. There were increases in sales to Asia (often China), the US and across Europe. Input prices rose only marginally, but it was the first increase in a year-and-a-half amid higher demand for materials and associated shortages at suppliers. On the other hand, further staff cuts were observed
