Germany, the leading economy in the Euro Zone, will reveal one of the key economic indicators – German Ifo Business Climate on September 24 at 11:00 MT time.
All attention to Euro
EU Flash Manufacturing & Services PMI will come out on Friday at 11:00 MT time!
Instruments to trade: EUR/USD, EUR/JPY, EUR/CAD
There are two versions of the PMI report: Flash and Final. Flash is the earliest one and thus tends to have more impact. If this indicator comes above 50.0, it signals the industry expansion, below – contraction. Besides, on Friday French and German PMIs will be released. Since Germany has the largest economy in Europe, it will be closely watched by investors as well.

That’s why countries may impose new restrictions, which will dampen economic activity and slow down the recovery.
- If PMI is greater than the forecast, the EUR will surge.
- Otherwise – fall.
