- Inflation in the EZ has peaked, but core inflation above 2% will be a challenge for the ECB in 2022.
- Watch services inflation closely after the decline in January; it could hit 3%-plus in Q3.
- We see three conditions for the ECB to lift its deposit rate by 30bp in H1 2023.
- The EZ's trade surplus in goods is a lot perkier if we choose to believe the ECB's current account data.
- Net services exports likely jumped in Q4, but this means intellectual property investment plunged.
- EZ portfolio outflows are now slowing, belatedly; inflows signal trouble for equities in 2022.
- We still think net trade supported GDP growth in Q4, despite the nominal goods trade deficit.
- Leading indicators suggest net exports won't pro- vide much of a boost to GDP growth in 2022.
- Full-year German GDP data for 2021 suggest growth was slower than previously thought in Q4.
In one line: A surplus no more, but net trade still probably provided a little boost to GDP growth in Q4.
- Decent hard data lead us to raise our Q4 forecast for Italy, as for Spain, but GDP growth has slowed.
- Italian GDP likely rose by 0.8% in Q4; Q1's outcome will be little more than zero, as virus restrictions bite.
- An early election in Italy would put upward pressure on BTP yields, but it would prove short-lived.
In one line: Distorted by Irish data; industry was probably a small drag on GDP growth in Q4.
In one line: Industry supported growth last quarter.
- Retail sales data had a decent November, but online sales can't offset falling services spending.
- Germany is on track to meet our expectations for Q4 growth, but we're reducing our forecasts in France.
- EZ inflation has peaked; a strong rebound in the core will be a headache for the ECB in Q2 and Q3.
In one line: This is the peak, but the fall will be slow and uneven.
In one line: Goods spending rebounds but industrial production still in the doldrums.
- German factory orders are running hotter than manufacturing production...
- ...And the jump in manufacturing turnover points to a consensus-beating production report today.
- Headline inflation in Germany was broadly stable in December, but the core rate rose further.
- Advance November retail sales data point to relative strength in EZ consumption midway through Q4.
- Germany's labour market recovery continued in Q4, but surveys warn of a setback in Q1.
- Headline inflation in France remained high in December, but energy inflation is now falling.
- The upward revision to Q3 GDP in Spain still leaves it further below the Q4 2019 level than elsewhere...
- ...The recovery has now slowed sharply; we look for just 1.0% growth in Q4; risks are to the downside.
- Data over the holidays are likely to show soft retail sales and yet more softening in business surveys.
- Gas prices have further to rise in the short term boosting energy inflation into Q1.
- But easing demand and base effects will then bring gas inflation hurtling down.
- Political tensions with Russia, and Germany's plans to wind down nuclear energy, present upside risks.
- The ECB’s data continue to paint a less dramatic picture of trade in goods than Eurostat's numbers.
- Net services exports likely will jump in Q4, but this will be offset in part by a fall in IP capex.
- The euro glut has expanded during the pandemic, due mainly to a rise in EZ foreign equity holdings.
- Supply bottlenecks are now easing, but likely will remain a challenge at the start of next year.
- Rising energy costs and new virus restrictions are the key risks to manufacturing in the near term.
- The virus might also drive more long-lasting distortions between supply and demand.
- 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: One more rise in December, and then the fever will break, for a short while.
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.
- German core inflation will fall sharply in January, but then rebound; the HICP rate will stay sticky in 2022.
- Spanish and Italian industrial production both fell at the start of Q4, in contrast to increases in the core...
- ...We think industry will be a drag on GDP growth in Q4, just when risks to services activity are rising.
