Russia Service Sector Expands For Fifth Straight Month

Russia's service sector expanded for the fifth consecutive month in November, survey data from IHS Markit showed Wednesday.

The services Purchasing Managers' Index fell to 55.6 in November from 55.8 in October. But a score above 50 indicates expansion.

The sector expanded at the second-fastest pace in a year driven by higher client demand.

The survey showed that private sector signaled fifth consecutive expansion in November. Nonetheless, the composite output index declined to 52.9 from 53.3 in the previous month as manufacturing firms registered a further fall in production.

The Central Bank of Russia may look to reduce the key rate again in due course amid muted price increases and historically modest client demand across the private sector, Siân Jones, an economist at IHS Markit said.

Trading in leveraged currency contracts comes with substantial risk. You must be aware of these risks before opening an account to trade. High leverage amplifies gains as well as losses, leading to potential loss of the entire account balance. Trading in leveraged currency contracts may not be suitable for every investor. Never speculate using money that you cannot afford to lose.
