Euro Zone Manufacturing PMI

Earlier today during the London session, the Euro zone Manufacturing Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) was released by the Markit Economics. The forecast was slated for an increase from the last reading of 51.0 to 51.5 in March 2015. However, the outcome was on the higher side, as the Euro zone Manufacturing Purchasing Managers Index increased to 51.9. The report mentioned that the improvement was broad-based by sector, and the Growth of services business activity was one of the best and highest since May 2011. This was a very positive note.

Speaking on the same the Chief Economist at Markit, Chris Williamson mentioned that the “eurozone’s economic recovery gained further momentum in March, with the PMI hitting its highest for almost four years. The improvement provides welcome news to a region awaiting signs that the ECB’s quantitative easing is stimulating the real economy”.

Furthermore, the Euro zone services PMI was also released by the Markit Economics. The forecast was slated for an increase from the last reading of 53.7 to 53.9 in March 2015. However, the outcome was again better than expected, as the Euro zone services PMI rose to 54.3.

German Manufacturing PMI

The German Manufacturing Purchasing Managers Index was also released today during the London session. The forecast was slated for a minor rise from the last reading of 51.1 to 51.5 in March 2015. However, the outcome was very encouraging, as the German manufacturing PMI increased by 1.3 points to 52.4. Moreover, the German services PMI also posted a rise from 54.7 to 55.3. Overall, the data was on the positive side, and helped the EURUSD pair to gain strength.

The report stated that the German manufacturers reported one of the highest reduction in stocks of finished goods in over two years in March, and not only this, the pre-production inventories also fell this month.
