8 Sept 2021 A V-Shaped Recovery in the EZ Economy is Now in Sight

  • 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.

7 Sept 2021 Major Orders Flatter Jump in German Manufacturing Demand

  • 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

EZ Datanote: Factory Orders, Germany, July 2021

  • In one line: Solid, but driven almost exclusively by major export orders to non-EZ economies.

31 Aug 2021 EZ Core Inflation Leapt in August, due Mainly to Technical Factors

  • Core inflation in the euro area rocketed in August, but we doubt that markets will notice.
  • PEPP tapering is coming, but the overall tenor of the ECB's communication remains as dovish as ever.
  • The EZ survey data are now softening, but that won't matter for GDP in Q3; for Q4, however, it might.

6 Aug 2021 Industry in the Core is Not Going Anywhere

German factory orders surged in June, more than reversing May's plunge ...
... But turnover data point to a weak end to Q2 for industry; we look for a 0.5% monthly fall in June.
French industry continued to tread water; even though car output rose for the first time this year.

5 Aug 2021 We Remain Optimistic about the Reopening Upturn in Ser vices

The PMIs confirm that the Q2 upturn in services continued at the start of the third quarter.
Data in France and Spain suggest that hospitality came roaring back in Q2; more to come in Q3.
EZ retail sales jumped by 3.4% in Q2; growth will slow in Q3, but should remain robust.

4 Aug 2021 All Set for Record-Busting Q3 GDP Growth in the EZ Economy

We're raising our 2021 growth forecasts for France, mostly due to technicals linked to recent revisions.
We now think German GDP will rise by just 2.7% in 2021, but the carry-over into 2022 will be solid.
Our new Q3 forecasts are broadly in line with the consensus; all set for a spectacular quarter.

3 Aug 2021 The Swiss Economy Entered Q3 on the Front Foot

Raft of Swiss data reaffirm our view that the economy is recovering quicker than the Eurozone.
The pick-up in Swiss inflation in July is nowhere near enough to set alarm bells off at the SNB...
... but a stronger franc all but cements the need for higher FX intervention.

2 Aug 2021 Punchy Growth in the Periphery to Push EZ Forecasts Higher in Q3

EZ GDP data beat expectations in Q2, which will drive upward revisions to 2021 forecasts.

We now expect full-year GDP growth in the Euro- zone of 5.0% in 2021, up from 4.5% previously.

Ignore the July dip in euro area core inflation; it will leap to 1.5% in August.

24 May 2021 The EZ Recovery is Underway, but can the Supply Side Cope?

Judging by the PMIs alone, the private sector in the euro area has put the virus in its rearview mirror. Data on Friday showed that the composite EZ PMI improved further midway through Q2, rising to 56.9 in May from 53.8 in April, extending the rebound which began in February.
