In one line: Industrial production should rebound soon; services are softening.
In one line: A decent Q4 for construction, despite downward revisions.
- Growth in EZ house prices accelerated at a record pace in Q3; at this rate, it will hit 10% soon.
- With most tailwinds still around this year, we expect further house price growth increases.
- This will put a floor on any slowdown in spending growth, but will also raise alarm bells at the ECB.
- We are raising our headline inflation forecasts for next year, but we're still well behind the ECB.
- Core inflation will hover around 2% for much of next year, causing a headache for the central bank.
- More poor survey data reassert our view that Q4 and Q1 won’t be pretty for the EZ’s largest economy.
In one line: All set for a decent Q4.
In one line: More evidence of a near-term slowdown.
- 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.
- Eurozone house prices are rising at their fastest pace since before the global financial crisis..
- ...Indicative signs point to further upside ahead, supporting consumer spending...
- ...But the virus remains a threat in the near term, weighing on consumer confidence.
- EZ inflation is running red hot, hitting a record high of 4.9% in November.
- Shipping costs to the Eurozone's most important trading partners are still rising...
- ...Still, the fall in global measures points to shipping costs dragging headline inflation down.
- Lending growth has accelerated in the EZ, thanks to a pick-up in lending to firms...
- ...This is positive for the outlook for EZ investment, but will the new virus wave nip it in the bud?
- The decline in the ESI suggests GDP growth took a leg down in Q4; it will drop further in December.
In one line: Further falls are likely over the coming months.
- Inflation in the Eurozone is still rising, but it will cool next year as core goods and energy inflation ease…
- …But rising services inflation will keep the core rate uncomfortably high for the ECB in H1 22.
- Construction output in the EZ rebounded at the end of Q3; we look for further gains through Q4.
In one line: A rebound, at last; all set for a solid Q4.
- Spain's GDP breakdown suggests that consumers' spending fell in Q3; it almost surely didn't.
- An upward revision to consumption will offset down-ward revisions to net trade and manufacturing.
- We think revisions will show that GDP rose by 2.5% in Q3, 0.5pp quicker than first estimated.
- GDP growth in Germany stalled at the end of Q3, and the rebound in early Q4 looks tepid.
- Growth in France is now slowing, but momentum at the end of Q3 was encouragingly robust.
- Industrial production in Spain rose modestly in September, not enough to salvage Q3 as a whole.
- French GDP growth rebounded strongly in Q3, from a lacklustre Q2; we look for a 2.4% rise in output.
- Italian GDP is also likely to have posted a solid quarter, but base effects kept a lid on the headline.
- Spain's economy likely took pole position in Q3; services exports rocketed as tourism reopened
In one line: Will German growth forecasts have to fall further?
- A four-week Covid lockdown in Latvia is a warning shot across the bow for the EZ…
- …But we're sticking to our view that hospitalisations will remain contained, even as cases rise.
- Early survey data for October hint at robust economic activity at the start of Q4.
- EZ construction output slipped in August, all but ensuring a decline through Q3 as a whole.
- Shortages in labour and raw materials are holding back construction, but output should rebound in Q4.
- A traffic light coalition is now a solid base-case in Germany, but a leap in fiscal stimulus isn't.
- In one line: Not pretty, but it should get better soon.
