- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Germany's nominal trade surplus in goods fell further in October, but real net trade rebounded.
- Net exports in services in Germany collapsed in Q3; that won't happen again in Q4.
- The race to replace Jens Weidmann as Buba president is on; all contenders are relatively dovish.
- EZ inflation is running red hot, hitting a record high of 4.9% in November.
- Shipping costs to the Eurozone's most important trading partners are still rising...
- ...Still, the fall in global measures points to shipping costs dragging headline inflation down.
- The green energy transition can be modelled as a sustained inflationary supply shock to the economy.
- In the extreme case, a rise in oil and gas prices could lift EZ inflation by 0.5pp between now and 2026.
- The price of CO2 emissions is rising; it could lift EZ inflation significantly over the next few years.
- The trade wars between the EU and the U.S. seem over, but a new front is opening with the U.K.
- Slowing demand from China is the biggest threat to euro area exports in the next six months.
- Our forecasts for the U.S., U.K. and China point to a slowdown in EZ goods exports next year.
- Euro area energy inflation will rise further in Q4, but we think the core rate has peaked.
- Risks are tilted towards persistently high core and headline inflation in the next 12 months…
- …But that doesn't justify the leap in Eurozone rate expectations in the past few weeks.
- EZ equity earnings have recovered handsomely this year, leaving valuations more attractive.
- Markets still expect strong earnings growth in the next 12 months; the macro data suggest otherwise.
- The pace of policy tightening implied by global rate expectations will soon be an issue for EZ equities.
- EZ imports are still outpacing exports by a hand- some margin; further downside for net trade in Q4?
- The EZ trade deficits with Asia and China are widening, this could sting Q4 GDP growth.
- Headline inflation in France is still rising, but the national core rate seems to have peaked.
- 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.
- We think the PMI surveys are underestimating actual GDP growth in Q3, especially in Spain.
- Inflation in Switzerland likely has peaked, keeping it lower than the headline HICP in the EZ...

- Inflation in the Eurozone rose further in September, but we are cautiously confident that this is the peak.
- Core inflation will remain high in Q4, then fall in Q1, but then rebound quickly; this could unsettle bonds.
- Ignore the negative messages from the monthly consumption data; spending jumped in Q3.
- The message from the PMI: The reopening boom is over, and supply-side woes are hitting demand.
- We are adjusting our EZ GDP growth forecast for Q4 down a tad, to 0.7-to-0.8% quarter-on-quarter.
- No change from the SNB, as expected; Spain's Q2 GDP growth cut by more than half.
- 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 inflation is running hot, and it will rise further in Q4; will markets and the ECB flinch?
- German unemployment fell further midway through Q3, and further improvement is in store.
- Consumers' spending, ex-services, in France dipped in July, but Q3 as a whole will be decent.
