- In one line: More evidence consumption growth accelerated in Q3.
- The polls in Germany have stabilised, pointing to an inconclusive result in Sunday's vote.
- The SPD's Olaf Scholz likely will be Chancellor, but the route to a stable coalition isn't clear.
- All eyes on the combined tally of the SPD, the Greens, and Die Linke; +50% and bunds will suffer.
- Our 2022 core inflation forecast signal that trouble is brewing for markets and the ECB.
- Core inflation will fall in Q1, but it will be back at just under 2% by spring, and through the summer.
- The ECB will stay dovish, but it will lift its inflation forecasts further; this will unsettle markets.
Core inflation in the Eurozone is rising, but it's difficult to say how quickly, given one-off distortions.
Is the ECB preparing markets for a lift to inflation forecasts in Q4? That could be a forecast error.
Construction in the euro area seems to be stagnat- ing; supply-side constraints are to blame, in part.
- In one line: Hot, and likely to get hotter still.
- In one line: Chocked by supply bottlenecks.
- In one line: A fall in net services trade offset a rebound in the goods surplus; net portfolio outflows slowed.
- A cold winter will turn rising gas prices into a macroeconomic issue; Q4 risks are tilted to the downside.
- Car sales in the Eurozone aren't going anywhere, mirroring the slump in production.
- The EV transition is underway in Europe, but lack of timely infrastructure investment is a challenge.
- In one line: Stabilising, but still-weak, due mainly to a wider deficit with China.
- Growth in EZ hourly labour costs plunged in Q2, but other, more timely, data point to robust wage gains.
- Ms. Lagarde's comments last week suggest that we should watch negotiated wages closely in H2.
- We see few signs of accelerating wage growth in 2021 collective bargaining agreements, yet.
- In one line: Finally above pre-virus levels, but not the start of a new trend.
- In one line: Ignore; wage compensation is rebounding strongly.
- The trend in oil prices suggests energy inflation will soon fall and even turn negative next year in the EZ...
- ...But high, and rising, gas prices will offset this impact, keeping energy inflation sticky.
- We doubt this will lead the ECB to taper more quickly, particularly if some restrictions return in winter.
- EZ fiscal policy will tighten next year, but it will remain much more supportive than before Covid.
- EU grants will fund public expenditure to the tune of about 0.5% of GDP in 2022, mostly in the South.
- Public investment as a share of GDP was rising before the virus; we think this trend will continue.
- The ECB will slow the pace of PEPP in Q4, probably by around €20B, to €60-€70B per month.
- Bond yields fell as Ms. Lagarde spoke, but will the ECB's decision on PEPP in Q4 satisfy markets?
- The German trade surplus snapped back in July, as imports plunged; more of the same is coming.
- The ECB will announce a slowdown in the pace of PEPP today, but markets likely won't flinch.
- The central bank's new forecasts will deliver upgrades to the outlook for growth and inflation.
- Trade data in France suggest that tourism is rebounding, but a full recovery is still a way off.
- German industrial output rebounded at the start of Q3, but the trend likely is still flat.
- Consumers' spending propelled the EZ economy in Q2; a full recovery in GDP is possible in Q3.
- We are lifting our full-year forecasts for 2021, but this is mostly book-keeping; growth is now slowing.
- In one line: More evidence that activity peaked midway through Q3
- In one line: Decent, but probably not the beginning of a sustained upturn.
- The July jump in German factory orders was driven entirely by major transport equipment.
- Industrial production in Germany rebounded in July, but we still think the trend is sideways.
- Spain should grow faster than elsewhere in Q3 and perhaps even Q4, but will continue to lag its peers
