Apr 3rd Reports: Mixed Picture in Eurozone Services Sectors

Two largest economies:

Germany’s service sector grows at weakest pace in 5 months.

Meanwhile France’s service field went back into expansion territory.  

Overall a bullish shade to the data, since after all there is growth, but it remains choppy and uneven…though not in the usual scenario (Germany doing better / France struggling).

France showing significant relative weakness

Reported Feb 20th.

Manufacturing PMI has yet to hit expansion territory.

Meanwhile, Services PMI just hit a 9-month low and seems to be carving out a top.


A feeble Eurozone recovery without France isn’t an all-clear from the Euro crisis.
