The EZ goods trade deficit widened again at the end of Q2 as imports rose and exports fell.
Imports should fall soon, but exports are also likely to soften as GDP growth in key trade partners slows.
Net trade will not prevent the incoming recession, exacerbating the impact from falling consumption.
In one line: Imports are still rising strongly.
Equities want to believe in a monetary policy pivot; we don’t share their optimism.
Valuations are now attractive for EZ equities, but we still think earnings have further to fall.
Eurostoxx 50 will fall 4% by year-end; we see gains of 10% and 13% in ’23 and ’24, respectively.
The EZ GDP deflators are going haywire; keep an eye on the difference between real and nominal growth.
Soaring import prices mean that the GDP deflator is rising by less than the deflator for domestic demand.
Our forecasts imply a peak in the GDP deflator in Q3, but growth will remain above average through 2024.
In one line: A solid finish to Q2 in manufacturing; net exports in services are soaring.
In one line: Lifted by improving net trade with China, the UK and Russia.
Risks are tilted towards a downward revision of Q2 GDP growth in Germany, to a small contraction.
Near-real-time data in Germany are holding up, but surveys and real M1 growth are terrible.
Germany is now likely in recession; we expect tentative signs of a rebound by Q1-23.
The EZ jobless rate held at a record-low in June, but the number of people unemployed rose slightly.
Ukrainian refugees are lifting labour supply less than expected, but we still see joblessness rising in H2.
We think the EZ unemployment rate will rise to 7.0% by year-end; risks to this forecasts are balanced.
Strong EZ macro data signal a 50bp hike in September, but we no longer see a hike in February.
The German economy stalled in Q2, setting the scene for a technical recession in H2....
...EZ GDP rose by a solid 0.7% q/q in Q2, but we think it will be revised lower in time, probably to 0.4%.
In one line: Revisions will change the story for EZ GDP soon; Core inflation will stay at 4% through Q3.
In one line: GDP will soon be falling; a rise in labour supply is lifting the unemployment rate.
In one line: Stronger than expected; Brace for a tough H2.
In one line: As we expected Spain did the heavy lifting in Q2
In one line: Robust, but it was all net exports and inventories.
HICP core inflation in Germany rose further in July; it will peak in September, at just under 4%.
Energy inflation in Germany is now falling, but upside risks in gas and electricity are still substantial.
ESI sank in July, adding to the evidence of a significant slowdown in the EZ economy.
Inflation likely remained hot in July as a rise in food inflation and the core rate offset a falling energy rate.
GDP data will paint a picture of a weak EZ economy ahead of a probable recession in H2.
We pencilled-in a contraction in Germany, but a pick-up in growth in each of the rest of the big four.
In one line: Depressed by accelerating imports; foreign investors are dumping EZ assets.
The EZ trade deficit narrowed in May, helped by a 4.8% month-to-month leap in exports.
The cost of EZ energy imports likely will rise further, but volumes could fall as Russia cuts off the gas.
Imports from China were still soaring in Q2, but we think they will cool soon.
In one line: A surprising rebound, but no change in the underlying trend, yet.
All signs point to a drop in Swiss imported inflation; weaker growth will weigh on domestic prices.
Calling the peak in the headline rate is fraught with difficulty; our best bet is August.
A snap election may still be avoided, despite Italy’s Prime Minister Draghi’s resignation.
