Eurozone CPI

Wednesday, November 30

10:00 GMT

Inflation is everywhere and still very hot in the Eurozone, where CPI stands at over 10% on an annual basis. This is a record high and well above the ECB’s 2% target. Surging energy prices had been exacerbated by euro weakness. However, both energy and the USD/EUR exchange rate have fallen of late, and there is optimism in the air that peak inflation has been reached. But a recession seems unavoidable. Still, the ECB will have to continue raising rates, even if we see a sizeable drop.

US GDP

Wednesday, November 30

13:30 GMT

The world’s largest economy grew at an annualized pace of 2.6% in Q3, beating forecasts of a 2.4% expansion and rising from two quarters of negative growth. Clearly, the US has been holding its own much better than some other regions in the world but faced with mounting evidence that the consumer is weakening amid hot inflation and interest rate hikes, the economy faces a bumpy road ahead.

While concerns over a potential recession are on the rise, the Fed has so far been reluctant to hit the breaks on rate hikes because of a healthy jobs market. The economy added a stronger-than-expected 261K jobs in October, which was well above forecasts and September’s numbers were revised higher. But if hiring slows down sharply then this could raise recession alarm bells, causing a re-think at the FOMC.
