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.

8 Nov 2021 Is the EZ Economy Running on Empty at the Start of Q4?

  • 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.

8 Oct 2021 We're Reducing our Q3 GDP Growth Forecasts in Germany

  • German auto output crashed in August; we're nudging our Q3 GDP growth forecasts down, to 2.0% q/q.
  • The Q3 plunge in German industry is clear evidence that supply-side woes are now hitting demand.

6 Oct 2021 How to Understand and Use Inflation Expectations in the EZ

  • EZ inflation expectations don't predict inflation, but they're not entirely without value either.
  • Industrial production in France rose again in August; Q3 as a whole likely was decent.

23 Sept 2021 Another SNB Snoozefest; Limited Impact from Evergrande on EZ

  • No one expects any changes at the SNB today, us included; we think policy will be on hold until 2024.
  • The CHF will strengthen to the end of the year, but not enough to warrant significant FX intervention.
  • Markets are worried about Evergrande—rightly—but contagion is limited, for now.

17 Sept 2021 Winter is Coming in Europe; Hopefully it Won't be Too Cold

  • 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.

12 Aug 2021 Your Guide to the Somewhat Confusing July CPI in Germany

  • VAT base effects in core goods were the main driver of the July leap in German inflation.
  • The yawning gap between national and HICP services inflation will close soon; the latter will rebound.
  • We now see clear evidence of a reopening bump in hospitality prices; will it be sustained?

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.

10 May 2021 EZ Manufacturing Disappointed in Q1, will Q2 be Better

Friday's data in the core EZ economies confirmed our suspicion that the reality in manufacturing at the start of the year was not as rosy as implied by the headline surveys and new orders data.
