“In the euro area GDP figures for Q2 are released and we expect that the recovery has lost a bit of momentum”.

“Yesterday’s industrial production figures showed a decline for a second month in a row and we revised our GDP forecast down to 0.1% q/q from 0.2% q/q”.

“Having said that, retail sales have increased during Q2 suggesting that private consumption continues to increase at a faster pace”.This also reflects that domestic demand in Europe is still doing well”.

“Note that the German, French and Portuguese figures are released ahead of the euro-area aggregate”.
