18 June 2024 Eurozone Monitor Another day, another wage figure points to the ECB on hold in July

  • The EZ hourly labour cost growth data were the final wage indicators to be published for Q1… 
  • ...The data confirm wage growth picked up in Q1, but mainly due to one-offs in Germany. 
  • Wage growth will slow in due course, but a July rate cut is off the table; September is not certain either.

14 June 2024 Eurozone Monitor Will consumption growth save the day for Italy's economy?

  • Italy’s economy had a decent Q1 and will continue to grow this year...
  • ...But a correction in investment remains on the cards and is now likely to come as soon as Q2.
  • We forecast GDP growth of 1% in 2024, as in 2023, before 1.8% next year; risks remain to the downside

22 May 2024 Eurozone Monitor Net trade will be a drag on EZ GDP growth in coming quarters

  • The EZ goods trade surplus widened in March, and net trade in goods likely boosted GDP in Q1.
  • Advance data from China as well as surveys suggest this boost is disappearing in Q2...
  • ...And we think rising imports means net trade is set to weigh on growth for the rest of the year.

21 May 2024 Eurozone Monitor Where will investment fare worst in the EZ big four this year?

  • Were it not for the superbonus, Italian investment likely would be falling off a cliff...
  • ...Interest rates faced by firms are among the high- est, credit standards tight and loan demand sinking.
  • The lagged hit from rising interest rates on Eurozone investment will fade later this year, but only slowly.

10 May 2024 Eurozone Monitor Rise in food inflation in April not the start of a new trend

  • Food inflation has declined steadily since peaking at 15.5% last year but now seems to be stabilising. 
  •  Surveys suggest it will hold steady just below 3% for now, but falling food PPI points to further downside. 
  •  Catalonia’s election will most likely lead to a PSC-led coalition government; Sanchez will be happy.

EZ Datanote: Industrial Production, Germany, March

In one line: German industry came out of recession in Q1, will it last?

Melanie Debono (Senior Eurozone Economist)Eurozone

9 May 2024 Eurozone Monitor Services drove EZ GDP in Q1, despite German industry recovery

  • EZ industry was a drag on GDP growth in Q1, despite German industry coming out of recession.
  • February data confirm services led the rebound in EZ GDP in Q1 and will stay in the driving seat for now.
  • The boost from construction appears to be reversing already, and the fall in the PMI in April bodes ill.
