  3. UK manufacturing expands at its fastest in seven-months during June

Economy: European stocks are climbing at the start of a new quarter as traders absorb steady manufacturing and employment data from the common-currency bloc – the Eurofirst 300 is adding 0.5%. A Eurozone manufacturing PMI reading slowed to a seven-month low of 51.8 in June although it points to a continuation of the sector’s recovery with a twelfth consecutive monthly expansion. Highlights include Spanish factory activity hitting a seven-year high, Germany’s reading missing expectations and French manufacturing showing signs of improvement but still languishing below the 50 level. Unemployment across the euro-area was stable in May with the rate holding at 11.6%.
