EU Breaking News: Flash PMI Indicates November Expansion, Euro Higher

NOVEMBER PMI SURPRISE BEAT PUSHES EURO HIGHER

Eurozone PMI exceeded expectations this morning:

  • Composite = 55.8, EST 53.2
  • Manufacturing = 58.6, EST 57.3

A reading above 50 is suggestive of an expanding economy which was expected after Germany and France gave some indication to the estimate beat this morning when both countries announced positive prints. This may come as a surprise to many considering the current COVID-19 situation in Europe, and was reflected post-announcement with the Euro trading marginally higher against the greenback.

Closing off 2021 high energy prices, supply bottlenecks and COVID-19 concerns are likely to remain and hinder EU economic growth. This will not bode well for Euro bulls and could see further depreciation against the dollar.

The U.S. dollar gained further ground on the Euro yesterday after Fed Chair Jerome Powell was reelected. Markets consider Powell the “hawkish” choice but in reality he is far from a hawk, which leads me to believe the dollar rally will correct itself short-term. Later today, U.S. PMI data (see calendar above) could swing momentum back in favor of EUR/USD bears – data dependent.

    • DogeDay always brings back memories of 2019 when my friends were diving into Dogecoin and joining farming activities. That's why I'm excited to explore the Bitget DogeDay giveaway event. Plus, with tomorrow's BTC halving, the excitement is doubled!
    • As a meme fan, I have been waiting patiently for the Bull trend that happened to BTC recently to get to all the alts and so we can have what we had back then in 2021 to happen again, but time the strength of the uptrend has not been able to match up with what I am expecting and I do hope that the halving will help, but looking at the hype that is usually expected from the meme community. I don't think I'll be able to wait for the trend to resume and so I am taking more steps ahead of the game, taking up all the opportunities I believe would help the price-trend of my holdings, especially for the DOGE memes and I have found this DOGEDAY event ongoing and it really made a lot of sense to me, because if we look at how the DOGE coins have performed in the past. I believe if we can have a Bitcoin day to celebrate the first cryptocurrency, then we should be able to have a DOGEDAY too looking at the success rate of the meme and the support from the community. For me, this is something special that is worth the energy, vibes and hype and worth participating it. There are different sections to the event, which include the Twitter part, where Bitget is sharing $3,00 to those participating( https://twitter.com/bitgetglobal/status/1780495739984150962Twitter Post ) and the telegram event, and I believe this will favour those that love to bet on the price of coins. They are sharing 100BGB tokens for this and the Discord event has a 90BGB token to be shared.  If we can have Bitcoin's day, then this DOGEDAY should be observed in all the DOGE communities and I will admonish meme lovers to observe events like this because it reflects the nature of memecoin and the hype around it.
