Share

In today’s comprehensive EURNZD forecast, we will first scrutinize the current economic conditions in the Euro area. Following that, we will meticulously delve into the details of the technical analysis of the EURNZD pair.

Signs of Recovery in Euro PMI

Bloomberg—In November 2023, the Eurozone’s manufacturing sector displayed a small but notable improvement. The HCOB Eurozone Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) rose to 44.2, up from 43.1 in October. This increase marks the highest level seen since May. However, it’s important to recognize that despite this increase, the manufacturing sector is still facing a period of contraction – this has been the case for the past seventeen months.

The contraction in manufacturing has been uneven across the Eurozone, with some countries experiencing more significant declines than others. Austria is at the forefront of this downturn, with Germany and France also seeing notable decreases. This regional variation highlights the differing economic conditions and challenges the Eurozone faces.

Several factors have contributed to the ongoing contraction in manufacturing:

  • Output: There has been a continuous decrease in production, although this decline has slowed.
  • Orders and Sales: New and export orders have declined, indicating reduced demand for Eurozone manufactured goods.
  • Backlogs and Employment: Work backlogs have been diminishing for a year and a half, indicating a lack of new orders. Employment in the sector is also decreasing, with job losses reaching a rate not seen since August 2020.
  • Supply and Delivery: Supplier delivery times have been improving for ten months.
  • Pricing: Prices for inputs and outputs are in a deflationary phase, meaning they are decreasing.

Despite these challenges, there is a silver lining. Business confidence within the sector has improved, reaching its highest in three months. This could indicate a more positive outlook for the future.
