GDP data for France, Spain, Italy and Canada are about to be released today. A significant slowdown is expected, as we saw in Germany and US yesterday.
The preliminary EU inflation data for July are expected as well to decline. The US PCE data (for July) are expected to rebound modestly.
Moody’s may update its view on the German sovereign rating. However, we do not expect to see a change to either the outlook or the rating.
