The IHS Markit Germany Services PMI was revised higher to 54.7 in October of 2018 from a preliminary of 53.6 but remained below 55.9 in September. The reading pointed to the slowest growth in the services sector in three months although it remained above its long-run average. Financial intermediation and renting and business activities recorded the strongest growth rates. New orders rose the least in five months; backlogs of orders increased the most since April; and job creation slowed only slightly from the previous month, remaining one of the highest in the past 11 years. Also, output price inflation was the second strongest on record and input costs remained elevated, mainly due to wages and fuel. Finally, business confidence fell to the lowest level in nearly two years. Services PMI in Germany is reported by Markit Economics.
