The eurozone economy is likely heading into a mild recession, S&P Global says

S&P Global’s final composite PMI (purchasing managers’ index) for the euro zone rose to 47.8 in November from a 21-month low of 47.3 in October, remaining below the 50 points separating expansion from contraction.

“A fifth consecutive monthly decline signaled by the PMI increases the likelihood that the eurozone will slide into recession,” said Chris Williamson, chief business economist at S&P Global Market Intelligence.

However, the reduction in the rate of contraction means the region is likely to see GDP contract by just 0.2%, Williamson predicted.

UK economy faces ‘toughest period’ since financial crisis, says S&P Global

The UK services sector shrank for a second straight month in November as the country’s cost-of-living crisis continued to squeeze demand, S&P Global’s services PMI (purchasing managers’ index) said on Monday.

The services PMI remained at 48.2, matching a 21-month low in October and remaining below the 50 mark that separates expansion from contraction.

Chris Williamson, chief business economist at S&P Global, said PMIs showed a growing risk of a UK recession

“The change in government and its new economic policies may have helped stem the volatility in financial markets since September’s ‘mini-budget’, but the economic picture remains stubbornly unchanged,” Williamson said.

“The overall rate of economic contraction remained steady compared to October, indicating a drop in GDP at a quarterly rate of 0.4%.” As such, this is the most difficult period the UK economy has faced since the global financial crisis, barring only the peak of a pandemic.”
