Spain’s stronger manufacturing PMI performance was mainly due to increases in the following:

  • improved production output
  • new business and export orders
  • manufacturing sector employment

ETF performance in November

The iShares MSCI Spain Capped ETF (EWP), which tracks Spain’s performance, fell 0.6% in November 2017, and the Vanguard FTSE Europe ETF (VGK), which tracks Europe’s (HEDJ) (EZU) (IEV) economic performance, fell 0.1%. Major Eurozone economies, such as Germany (EWG), France (EWQ), and the Netherlands, are showing improved economic activity, and Spain is recovering gradually, which may signal opportunities in European equity markets. In the next part of this series, we’ll analyze the US GDP in 3Q17.
