Euro zone businesses lost some momentum in June but still strong: PMI

Euro zone businesses lost some momentum in June but chalked up their best performance last quarter in over six years, according to surveys that showed companies started the second half of 2017 in rude health. IHS Markit's final composite Purchasing Managers' Index for the euro zone was 56.3 in June, down from May's 56.8 but comfortably beating a flash estimate of 55.7. REUTERS
