Eurozone PMIs

The eurozone economy showed renewed signs of life at the start of the fourth quarter, enjoying its strongest expansion so far this year with the promise of more to come. With backlogs of work accumulating at the fastest rate for over five years, business activity growth and hiring look set to accelerate further as we head towards the end of the year. October’s PMI is consistent with a quarterly GDP growth rate of 0.4pc, led by a 0.5pc pace of expansion in Germany. Modest growth of 0.2-0.3pc is being signalled for France, but there are various indicators which suggest that France will enjoy stronger growth in coming months, including a marked build-up of uncompleted work.

Trade Idea

Considering the overall technical and fundamental outlook, selling the pair on short term rallies appears to be a good in near term.
