TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The IHS Markit/BME Germany Manufacturing PMI was revised slightly down to 57.8 in November of 2020 from a preliminary of 57.9 and below 58.2 in October which was the highest in near 3 years. There was a slight loss of momentum in the pace of factory growth, with both output and new orders rising more slowly amid a second wave of coronavirus cases and new lockdown measures at home and abroad. Export orders slowed but remained strong overall amid rising sales to mainland Europe and Asia, especially China. Also, the rate of decline in factory employment was the slowest since June 2019 and business confidence was the second-highest on record, supported by growing hopes of an end to the pandemic and an improvement in demand.
