The final reading for the November Purchasing Managers' Index regarding the manufacturing performance was revised to the upside in Germany, as the index was reported higher at 52.4 from 52.0, opposing steady expectations.

The rise supported the upside revision seen in the aggregate euro zone manufacturing sector, as it joined its peers as well confirming that the signs of stability continued into the last quarter of the year supporting the third quarterly consecutive expansion for Germany and fueling the second for the aggregate euro economy.
