Key Quotes

“While the consensus expectation is for a rise of 0.1% qoq and 0.7% yoy, risks look skewed to the downside, particularly from Germany given the recent disappointing industrial and manufacturing production data.”

“US retail sales will give an indication of whether US consumption has bounced back in October after September’s fall. Consensus expectations are for a 0.2% mom rise for both the total and the ex auto measure. Underlying fundamentals still look to be positive for consumption given rising consumer confidence and real wages running around 3% yoy.”
