FOREX INVESTORS German construction PMI declined   The IHS Markit Germany Construction PMI edged down to 55.1 in June of 2017 from 55.3 in May but pointing to the third-fastest expansion in construction since March of 2016. New orders slowed while employment went up and sub-contractor supply declined at the fastest rate since December of 2006 which contributed to a survey-record increase in the rates they charged. Commercial activity recorded the sharpest increase and one of the fastest during the past six years. Civil engineering increased for the seventh month, the longest sequence of growth in over ten years, offsetting slower residential growth. Although German construction firms remained strongly confident regarding expected workloads in 12 months’ time, business expectations were the lowest in four months. Construction Pmi in Germany

BUZ INVESTORS  The Caixin Manufacturing PMI in China unexpectedly rose to 50.4 in June of 2017 from 49.6 in May and beating market consensus of 49.5. It was the highest reading since March, as output and new export orders increased at a faster pace. Also, buying activity rose slightly. Companies adopted relatively cautious attitudes towards their inventories, with both stocks of inputs and finished items declining. Meantime, firms trimmed their workforce number again and backlogs of work continued to rise. Optimism toward the business outlook fell to the lowest so far this year. “The manufacturing sector recovered slightly in June, but based on the inventory trends and confidence around future output, the June reading was more like a temporary rebound, with an economic downtrend likely to be confirmed later.  Caixin Manufacturing PMI

German factory orders rose more than expected in August

US Factory Growth At 9-Month Low: PMI

US Factory Growth At 9-Month Low: PMI

BUZ INVESTORS   US Factory Growth  The IHS Markit US Manufacturing PMI fell to 52.1 in June of 2017 from 52.7 in May and well below market expectations of 53, flash estimates showed. It is the lowest reading since September of 2016 as output and new business growth slowed, offsetting stronger contributions from job creation and inventory building.

Meanwhile, latest survey data revealed a marked slowdown in input price inflation to its weakest since March 2016. Lower cost pressures led to a moderation in factory gate price inflation in June. The latest rise in manufacturers’ output charges was the least marked since September 2016.




US Factory Growth

 

Commenting on the flash PMI data, Chris Williamson, Chief Business Economist at IHS Markit said:
“The economy ended the second quarter on a softer note. The June PMI surveys showed some pay-back after a strong May, indicating the second weakest expansion of business activity since last September.

“The average expansion seen in the second quarter is down on that seen in the first three months of the year, indicating a slowing in the underlying pace of economic growth. While official GDP data are expected to turn higher in the second quarter after an especially weak start to the year (our recent GDP tracker based on various official and survey data points to 3.0% growth), the relatively subdued PMI readings suggest there are some downside risks to the extent to which GDP will rebound.

“Historical comparisons of the PMI against GDP indicates that the PMI is running at a level broadly consistent with the economy growing at a 0.4% quarterly rate (1.5% annualized) in the second quarter, or just over 2% once allowance is made for residual seasonality in the official GDP data.

“There are signs, however, that growth could pick up again: new orders showed the largest monthly rise since January, business optimism about the year ahead perked up and hiring remained encouragingly resilient. The survey is indicative of non-farm payroll growth of approximately 170,000.

“Average prices charged for goods and services meanwhile showed one of the largest rises in the past two years, pointing to improved pricing power amid healthy demand.”Like up on FACEBOOK
