Key Quotes



"EUR is weak, but still trading in its 8‐session narrow 100 point 1.3333 to 1.3433 range. Today’s industrial production was disappointing, falling –0.3%m/m; however the real test is tomorrow’s CPI release, expected to come in at the flash estimate of 0.4%y/y on headline and 0.8%y/y on core; however a downward tilt to both France and Spain warn that disinflationary pressures are still a headwind."



"Any disappointment will be met with expectations of further ECB action. Eurozone GDP is expected to rise just 0.1%q/q in the second quarter."
