German Private Sector Grows Modestly: PMI
The IHS Markit Germany Composite PMI was revised higher to 50.2 in December of 2019 from a preliminary of 49.4 and 49.4 in the previous month. The reading pointed to the first gain in private sector activity in four months, mainly due to a rebound in services (52.9 from 51.7) while manufacturing contracted further (43.7 from 44.1). New business declined only marginally and at the slowest rate in the current six-month sequence of decrease, helped by a modest upturn in demand across the service sector and a further moderation in the rate of decline in total new export business.

Finally, output expectations improved to a ten-month high, buoyed by increased optimism across both monitored sectors (although confidence was notably stronger among service providers). from 49.40 points in November of 2019.
