18 Mar 2022 Italian Bonds are Holding On; will the End of QE be Too Much?

  • Italian government bond yields likely will rise further in the run-up to the end of QE...
  • ...But they will reverse some of their increase later in the year, even as the ECB tightening cycle begins.
  • EZ headline inflation could hit 7% in the second quarter, with core inflation rising to just over 3%.

16 Mar 2022 EZ Industry is Unlikely to Gain Much Momentum This Year

  • EZ industry has moved sideways since the start of 2021, as supply constraints held back output.
  • There are signs that higher energy costs are having a dampening affect on the most exposed sectors.
  • The war in Ukraine risks exacerbating this drag, further disrupting global supply chains.

7 Mar 2022 High Inflation is Not Hitting EZ Household Consumption, Yet

  • Consumption had a rough start to Q1, as restric- tions were tightened at the end of December...
  • ...But things now are looking up and we think high inflation won’t derail the consumer recovery.
  • Volatility is the name of the game in markets for now; a return to pre-Ukraine normality is a long way off.

3 Mar 2022 EZ Inflation Data will Make the ECB Uncomfortable

  • EZ inflation jumped by 0.7pp to 5.8% in February, driven by higher energy inflation, again.
  • We think the energy rate will start to fall soon, but some of this will be offset by a higher core.
  • The ECB will pause in light of the war in Ukraine, but can't avoid unwinding QE this year.

17 Dec 2021 EZ Monetary Stimulus is Set to Slow Next Year, Virus Permitting

The ECB will end PEPP in March, but is keeping the door open for a resumption if the virus worsens.

ECB asset purchases will be around €500B next year on current plans, half the pace in 2021.

The SNB is standing pat, as expected, and we're lowering our outlook for EZ growth in Q1.

16 Dec 2021 Suddenly, the Near-term Path Ahead for the ECB is Less Clear

Ms. Lagarde will stick to the signal that PEPP is likely to end in March, but Omicron is a big risk to this call.

The ECB's inflation forecasts will increase today; how close to 2% will they be for 2023 and 2024?

No rate hikes in 2022, but speculation about lift-off will intensify in the next six-to-12 months.

15 Dec 2021 Expect Another "No Change" at SNB's Meeting This Week

Higher inflation recently has allowed the SNB to tolerate a much stronger franc than in the past.
We expect the Bank to keep all policy settings unchanged at its meeting on Thursday.
But falling inflation and a stronger franc heading into 2022 will force it to ramp up CHF sales soon.

14 Dec 2021 Wage Growth in the EZ Set to Accelerate in 2022, We Think

All signs point to stronger EZ wage growth next year, but it won't be easy to tell in real time.
Negotiated wage growth is still slowing, but the ECB’s preferred compensation measure is firming.
The trend in unemployment points to negotiated wage growth rising towards 3% next year.

In one line: Terrible headline, but better details; output jumped in October.

7 Dec 2021 Factory Orders in Germany are Falling, but Output is Rebounding

  • Factory orders in Germany crashed in October, pegged back by a plunge in large orders…
  • …But turnover jumped, by 3.6% on the month, pointing to a consensus-beating production report today.
  • German manufacturing likely will do well in Q4, but the virus is now a severe risk for services.

EZ Datanote: Final Manufacturing PMIs, Eurozone, October

In one line: Firms are still struggling to get what they need at the start of Q4. 

Melanie Debono (Senior Eurozone Economist)Eurozone

25 Oct 2021 If the Supply Side Can't Move, Demand will Have to Fall

  • The composite PMIs are still consistent with robust GDP growth, but risks are stacked to the downside.
  • If the PMIs are right, demand is now falling to match fixed supply; that means slower GDP growth.
  • We look for another soft IFO today, but next week's consumer sentiment data should be more resilient.

Claus Vistesen (Chief Eurozone Economist)Eurozone

EZ Datanote: Advance PMIs, France, October 2021

  • In one line: Services are driving the recovery, as manufacturing is stuck in the mire.
