Before & After, developed in partnership with Refinitiv, looks at the upcoming events and announcements that will shape your investment portfolio. In this episode, Johanna Botta looks at the US Manufacturing PMI. While the services sector has continued to show strength, this new announcement will show how much coronavirus has affected manufacturing.
She then turns her attention to the German IFO business climate index reports. While Germany narrowly avoided a recession last year, hope for total recovery is slim as they are China’s most important trading partner. Botta shares what investors ought to look for and how that could affect the DAX. Finally, she reviews the FOMC minutes report.

There is a substantial risk of loss in foreign exchange trading. The settlement date of foreign exchange trades can vary due to time zone differences and bank holidays. When trading across foreign exchange markets, this may necessitate borrowing funds to settle foreign exchange trades. The interest rate on borrowed funds must be considered when computing the cost of trades across multiple markets.
