About Services PMI (MoM) (U.K.)
The U.K. Services PMI is a statistic that measures the economic situation for the U.K. services sector. It is a key representation of aggregate sales and employment levels. In comparison to the Manufacturing PMI, the Services PMI does not impact GDP positively or negatively. PMI Services is released by two private information outlets: Markit Economics and the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply.It is important to note that a value of 50 is the baseline for the Services PMI. Values above 50 are a signal of expansion, while below 50 indicates a slowdown. Market participants are partial to higher values, as this is evidence of sectoral growth.In terms of volatility, the Services PMI is a secondary metric for the U.K. Although the service industry plays a large role in the U.K.’s economy, the Services PMI release does not spike volatility in the GBP to the degree of a primary metric.
