S&P Global’s flash composite PMI, which incorporates services and production and is viewed as a trusted gauge of financial health, increased to 47.8 in November from 47.3 in October, defying forecasts in a Reuters survey for a fall to 47.0.
Any reading listed below 50 represents a contraction in activity, and November was the 5th successive month of shrinking.
In the U.K., the composite index was bit altered at 48.3 in November from 48.2 in October.
“Although business expectations rebounded from the 30-month low in October – which was probably linked to the improving domestic political situation – current activity remains under severe strain from weak confidence, costs pressures and tight financial conditions,” Berenberg financial experts Holger Schmieding and Kallum Pickering stated in a note.
“Much like in the euro zone, companies are still adding jobs. However, as labour market activity often lags broader economic trends, the slowing pace of job creation is probably an ominous sign that employment will eventually start to fall as the recession deepens through winter.”
