TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The IHS Markit/BME Germany Manufacturing PMI was revised lower to 58.3 in December of 2020 from a preliminary of 58.6. Still, the reading pointed to the strongest growth in factory activity since February of 2018, as it continued to recover from the shutdowns induced by the coronavirus pandemic earlier in 2020. Production continued to rise, albeit at a slightly reduced rate, while goods producers reported strong optimism towards the year-ahead outlook. Less positively, however, factory workforce numbers remained in decline, while increased strain on manufacturing supply chains led to a sharp rise in cost pressures. Looking ahead to prospects for 2021, December’s survey showed high expectations among manufacturers for output in the coming year. Many firms were hopeful that the pandemic’s impact on economic activity would diminish, and that clients’ appetite for investment spending would continue to recover
