Stock Market in Ireland
Ireland - Stock MarketAvailable first-quarter data indicates the Irish economy stayed firm in the face of global headwinds at the outset of the year. Retail sales rebounded sharply in February and the unemployment rate fell throughout the quarter—to its lowest level in 11 years in March. This, coupled with improved consumer confidence in March, bodes well for household consumption. Moreover, the industrial sector, on an annual basis, returned to growth in February following three months of steep losses. Adding to the slew of upbeat data, the manufacturing and services PMIs remained in expansionary territory in March, albeit slightly down from February, and performed substantially better than their Eurozone peers. On Brexit, although fears of a no-deal scenario have mostly subsided for now, domestic demand has continued to feel the pinch of hesitant consumption patterns and cautious investment decisions.
