Euro zone surge is firm in October

The euro zone's economy appears to be on track for a sturdy finish to this year, and companies are actually passing on more of their costs to customers because pricing power inched up, as a poll unveiled on Monday.

In October, IHS Markit's final composite Purchasing Managers' Index for the euro zone went down to 56.0 from September's outcome of 56.7, thus ruining an earlier flash forecast of 55.9.

The final euro area PMI was updated up marginally from the flash forecast just to leave euro area surge looking healthy enough at the beginning of Q4, as some financial experts stressed.

As earlier figures revealed, surge was still firm in France and Germany, the bloc's two leading economies, although slowed in Italy, hinting a recent flurry in economic activity in this country might be petering out.

Surge in Spain's major services sector edged down to its lowest value for nine months because the political crisis in Catalonia affected heavily business sentiment.
