- We see three conditions for the ECB to lift its deposit rate by 30bp in H1 2023.
- 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.

- The slowdown in real M1 growth points to a further fall in the EZ composite PMI in Q1, to about 52.
- Gas prices have further to rise in the short term boosting energy inflation into Q1.
