At the same time, the preliminary manufacturing (PMI) in the Euro zone probably remained unchanged at 52.2 this month, matching Mays final reading, according to the median forecast by experts.
The index is based on a monthly survey, which includes carefully selected companies that are representative of the state of the private sector in the economy and track the changes in production, new orders, market share, employment and prices in the manufacturing sector. The PMI is the first economic indicator for each month, providing information on the changing economic conditions, significantly earlier than the official state statistics. It is presented as a scale from 1 to 100. Readings above 50 are connected with a positive outlook for economic growth. Conversely, values below 50 indicate a less optimistic forecast. This is a preliminary value of the indicator.
The research group Markit Economics will release the official figures at 8:00 GMT.
In addition, the preliminary reading of Germany’s Services PMI in June probably slowed down to 55.7 this month, from 56.0 in May. The official reading is to be released at 7:30 GMT.
