Market Updates: ECB Economic Bulletin, Key Takeaways

Update on economic and monetary developments summary:

  • The global economic growth momentum has slowed recently amid geopolitical uncertainties and vulnerabilities in emerging markets.
  • Euro-area government bond yields declined somewhat as global risk-free rates decreased and sovereign bond spreads in the Euro area remained stable.
  • Euro area real GDP increased by 0.2%, quarter on quarter, in the third quarter of 2018, following growth of 0.4% in the previous two quarters.
  • Euro area annual HICP inflation declined to 1.6% in December 2018, from 1.9% in November, reflecting mainly lower energy price inflation.
