German Services Activity Growth at 4-Month High
The IHS Markit Germany Services PMI increased to 52 in December 2019 from 51.7 in November and in line with market expectations. The reading pointed to the strongest expansion in the services sector in four months, as new orders rose for the first time since August. Meantime, the job creation rate slowed slightly while the outstanding business dropped at a softer pace. On the price front, input costs continued to rise, still the rate of increase was the joint-weakest since July 2017. Finally, sentiment recovered further from October’s near seven-year low to the highest since June.

Germany Services Growth Weakest since 2016
The IHS Markit Germany Services PMI dropped to 51.3 in November 2019 from 51.6 in the previous month and missing market expectations of 52, preliminary estimates showed.

German October Services PMI Revised Higher
The IHS Markit Germany Services PMI was revised higher to 51.6 in October 2019 from a preliminary estimate of 51.2 and compared to September’s three-year low of 51.4, final estimates showed. The reading pointed to a stronger expansion in services activities, still one of the weakest since the current upturn began in mid-2013. New orders fell for the second straight month amid an ongoing weakness in demand; and new export orders dropped further. Also, the job creation rate slowed to its weakest since May last year. On the price front, input cost inflation accelerated to a six-month high, above the long-run average, boosted by wages, fuel and energy prices and output cost inflation was little-changed from the solid rate seen in September. Lastly, for the first time in nearly seven years, the number of businesses expecting activity to fall over the next 12 months exceeded those predicting growth, on the back of growing concerns about the economy.
