    [​IMG]

    Private sector credit in Australia was up a seasonally adjusted 0.1 percent on month in November, the Reserve Bank of Australia said on Monday.

    That was unchanged from the October reading but misses forecasts for an increase of 0.2 percent.

    On a yearly basis, credit rose 2.3 percent - also shy of estimates for 2.4 percent and down from 2.5 percent in the previous month.

    Housing credit was up 0.2 percent on month and 2.9 percent on year, while personal credit fell 0.5 percent on month and 4.9 percent on year and business credit rose 0.2 percent on month and 2.5 percent on year.

    Broad money gained 0.3 percent on month and 4.4 percent on year.

    Turkish Manufacturing Confidence Improves For Third Month

    [​IMG]

    Turkey's manufacturing confidence improved for a third straight month in December to its strongest level in eight months, while capacity utilization eased slightly, survey data from the central bank showed on Thursday.

    The manufacturing confidence index rose to 103.6 from 102 in November. The reading was the highest since April, when the score was 105.5.

    A confidence reading above 100 suggests that business leaders remain optimistic regarding the outlook for the economy. Factories were optimistic regarding production, order book levels, and employment over the next three months.

    Separate data from the central bank showed that the manufacturing capacity utilization rate eased to 77 percent in December from 77.2 percent in November. In October, the rate was 76.4 percent.

    Singapore PMI Improves To 51.0 In December

    [​IMG]

    The private sector in Singapore continued to expand in December, and at a faster rate, the latest survey from HIS Healthcare showed on Monday with a PMI score of 51.0.
    That's up from 50.4 in November, and it moves further above the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.
    Individually, firmer demand drove output higher for the first time since July - although weakness persisted across international markets as experts fell.
    Business confidence slid to a three-year low.

    Australia Construction Sector Sinks Deeper Into Contraction
    [​IMG]
    The construction sector in Australia continued to contract in December, and at a faster rate, the latest survey from the Australian Industry Group revealed on Wednesday with a six-and-a-half-year low PMI score of 38.9.
    That's down from 40 in November and it moves further beneath the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.
    Overall activity, new orders and supplier deliveries all grew substantially weaker to fuel the overall index decline.
    "Australia's construction sector ended 2019 on a low note with activity, employment and new orders all falling in December. The performance of the engineering construction sector slumped further, declining at the most precipitous rate in more than a decade. Commercial construction and apartment building activity also ended the year heading lower," Ai Group Head of Policy Peter Burn said.

    New Zealand Manufacturing PMI Slips Into Contraction
    [​IMG]
    The manufacturing sector in New Zealand fell into contraction ion December, the latest survey from BuzinessNZ showed on Friday with a PMI score of 49.3.
    That's down from the downwardly revised 51.2 reading in November (originally 51.4) and it slips beneath the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.
    This was a second consecutive decrease in activity, and the lowest result since September.
    Among the individual components, production and employment continued to contract, while new orders and deliveries remained in expansion but at a slower pace. Only finished stocks picked up steam.
    "The December result was disappointing," BNZ Senior Economist, Craig Ebert said. "After a couple of months flirting with positivity, the PMI dipped back just below the breakeven line again."
