    Ireland Manufacturing Sector Deteriorates In November



    Ireland's manufacturing sector contracted in November, survey data from IHS Markit showed on Monday.

    The seasonally adjusted AIB factory Purchasing Managers' Index, or PMI, fell to 49.7 in November from 50.7 in October. However, any reading below 50 indicates contraction in the sector.

    Inflows of total new business increased in November but the rate of expansion eased slightly from the previous month, while export sales declined further.

    Employment fell for the first time since September 2016 and stocks of finished goods increased for the sixth month in a row.

    Purchasing activity fell in November for the sixth time in the past seven months amid a decline in per-production inventories.

    Backlogs decreased further in November, with the rate of backlog depletion quickened from October.

    Input price inflation was the sharpest in seven months, while the rate of output charge inflation eased in November.

    Sentiment among manufacturers improved to the highest level in five months in November, the survey showed.

    Hong Kong PMI Continues To Tumble - IHH

    Hong Kong's private sector continued to contract in November, and at a faster pace, the latest survey from IHH revealed on Wednesday with a 16-year low PMI score of 38.5.

    That's down from 39.3 in October and it moves further beneath the boom-or-bust line that separates expansion from contraction.

    The November reading saw the sharpest decline in business activity in survey history, while the fall in new business was the sharpest since 2008. Business confidence remained close to a record low.

    Political unrest continued to disrupt the functioning of businesses, according to survey respondents.

    Dollar Exhibits Weakness Against Most Rivals


    The U.S. dollar was mostly subdued against major currencies on Thursday, amid a slew of economic data from across the globe and as traders awaited the outcome of the OPEC meet in Vienna.

    Conflicting reports on U.S.-China trade front weighed as well on the U.S. currency.

    Data from the Commerce Department showed U.S. trade deficit narrowed to $47.2 billion in October from a revised $51.1 billion in September. Economists had expected the trade deficit to narrow to $48.7 billion from the $52.5 billion originally reported for the previous month.

    The lower deficit was due to a 1.7% drop in imports at $254.3 billion. Exports were down 0.2% to $207.1 billion in October.

    Another report from the Commerce Department said new orders for U.S. manufactured goods increased in line with economist estimates in the month of October, rising by 0.3% after falling by a revised 0.8% in September.


    The dollar index opened at 97.59 and eased to a low of 97.36 a little past noon. It edged up to 97.44 subsequently but dropped to 97.39 later on, losing about 0.28%.

    Against the Euro, the dollar was down at $1.1106, retreating from $1.1078.

    The Eurozone economy grew as initially estimated in the third quarter, revised data from Eurostat showed. Gross domestic product grew 0.2% from the second quarter, when the economy expanded at the same rate.

    On a yearly basis, GDP growth came in at 1.2%, in line with the previous estimate and the second quarter growth.

    The pound sterling was stronger by more than 0.4% with a unit of sterling fetching $1.3163, as against $1.3098 earlier in the session.

    Against the Japanese Yen, the dollar was stronger at 108.79, compared to previous close of 108.65 yen a dollar.

    The loonie was up notably with the dollar-loonie pair at 1.3175. Canada's trade deficit narrowed to C$1.08 billion in October 2019 from an upwardly revised C$ 1.23 billion in September. Economists had expected a trade deficit of C$1.37 billion.

    Against the Aussie, the dollar was gaining in strength with the pair trading at 0.6835.

    The Swiss franc was up 0.1% against the dollar, with the dollar-franc pair at 0.9875.

    Traders were also reacting to news that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has asked the chairmen of the House committees investigating President Donald Trump to proceed with articles of impeachment.

    Pelosi accused Trump of abusing his power for his own benefit by withholding military aid from Ukraine in exchange for an announcement of an investigation into his political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden.

    On the trade front, a Wall Street Journal report indicates the U.S. and China are at odds over the size of Chinese agricultural purchases.

    Australia Construction Sector Sinks Deeper Into Contraction

    The construction sector in Australia continued to contract in December, and at a faster rate, the latest survey from the Australian Industry Group revealed on Wednesday with a six-and-a-half-year low PMI score of 38.9.

    That's down from 40 in November and it moves further beneath the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.

    Overall activity, new orders and supplier deliveries all grew substantially weaker to fuel the overall index decline.

    "Australia's construction sector ended 2019 on a low note with activity, employment and new orders all falling in December. The performance of the engineering construction sector slumped further, declining at the most precipitous rate in more than a decade. Commercial construction and apartment building activity also ended the year heading lower," Ai Group Head of Policy Peter Burn said.

    New Zealand Manufacturing PMI Slips Into Contraction

    The manufacturing sector in New Zealand fell into contraction ion December, the latest survey from BuzinessNZ showed on Friday with a PMI score of 49.3.

    That's down from the downwardly revised 51.2 reading in November (originally 51.4) and it slips beneath the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.

    This was a second consecutive decrease in activity, and the lowest result since September.

    Among the individual components, production and employment continued to contract, while new orders and deliveries remained in expansion but at a slower pace. Only finished stocks picked up steam.

    "The December result was disappointing," BNZ Senior Economist, Craig Ebert said. "After a couple of months flirting with positivity, the PMI dipped back just below the breakeven line again."
