Measures
The Eurozone Services Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) measures the activity level of purchasing managers in the services sector. Any reading above 50 signals expansion, while a reading under 50 shows contraction.
Usual Effect
A higher than expected reading should be taken as positive/bullish for the EUR , while a lower than expected reading should be taken as negative/bearish for the EUR.
Frequency
Monthly
Why Traders Care
Traders watch these surveys closely as purchasing managers usually have early access to data about their company’s performance, which can be a leading indicator of overall economic performance. It is worth noting that the European service sector does not influence, either positively or negatively, the GDP as much as the PMI manufacturing does.
