- Stronger-than-expected industry and retail data lead us to revise up our Q4 GDP forecast for Spain.
- We now think GDP grew by 1.5% q/q, much quicker than in the other major EZ economies.
- Solid Q4 growth increases the carry-over for 2022 growth forecasts, but Spain is still a laggard.
- 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.
- 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.
- Omicron is less of a burden on hospitals than Delta, but surging cases will still lead to restrictions in Q1.
- Warm weather and energy imports are driving a fall in natural gas prices; good news for consumers.
- The slowdown in real M1 growth points to a further fall in the EZ composite PMI in Q1, to about 52.
- 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.
- 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.
- Futures-implied interest rates have declined sharply, but markets still look for a hike in 2022.
- Volatility in short-term rate expectations points to a quicker-than-expected slowdown in QE next year.
- Strong earnings have protected equities from fixed income volatility, but growth is now slowing.
- The Eurozone economy recovered further in Q3, and revisions could close the gap with Q4-2019.
- France and Italy stood out to the upside in Q3, with Germany lacklustre, and Spain implausibly weak.
- We're lifting our inflation forecasts, again, but we still think markets are wrong on ECB tightening in 2022.
- French GDP growth rebounded strongly in Q3, from a lacklustre Q2; we look for a 2.4% rise in output.
- Italian GDP is also likely to have posted a solid quarter, but base effects kept a lid on the headline.
- Spain's economy likely took pole position in Q3; services exports rocketed as tourism reopened
- EZ construction output slipped in August, all but ensuring a decline through Q3 as a whole.
- Shortages in labour and raw materials are holding back construction, but output should rebound in Q4.
- A traffic light coalition is now a solid base-case in Germany, but a leap in fiscal stimulus isn't.
- German core inflation is still rising; we think it will hit 3%-plus in Q4, before easing in January.
- Electricity inflation in Spain is still rocketing, threatening consumer's real incomes and industry.
- Core inflation in Spain is now back at its pre-virus rate; should we be looking for an overshoot now?
- The Spanish government is continuing to support the recovery next year...
- ...But its GDP growth forecasts, reliant on hefty in- creases in investment, seem too high to us.
- The budget deficit is all but certain to be higher than the government’s 5% estimate next year.
- 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.
- Industry in the EZ seemingly got off to an OK start in Q3, but we doubt this is a turn in the trend.
- Italian output continues to shine, thanks to out-sized gains in less capital intensive industry...
- ...A correction may be on the way but strong business surveys mean that we remain optimistic.
- 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.
- Banks went into the crisis in a relatively healthy state; much better than in 2007.
- The jump in emergency loans during Covid is un- likely to be destabilizing, even if some of it turns sour.
- Stress tests show that banks can handle a jump in NPLs, and foreign risks are generally limited.
Earlier this week we delved into German and French inflation data, looking for signs of supply-side price pressures in goods prices, and a reopening bump in Covid-sensitive prices.
Weakness in the core remained a drag on euro area manufacturing midway through Q2, amid strength elsewhere.
Yesterday's advance CPI data in the Eurozone broadly confirmed our expectations.
