EU/US Yields Tumble Amid Slump In Industrial Confidence

US and European bonds are extending their gains following yesterday's dovish comments from Fed Gov. Waller as German CPI plunged far more than expected and European Industrial Confidence dipped back towards 10-year-lows (ex-COVID-lockdowns).

German inflation eased more than forecast in November on retreating energy and travel costs, putting the European Central Bank’s 2% target within reach.

Consumer prices rose 2.3% from a year ago, down from 3% in October and less than the 2.5% estimated by economists in a Bloomberg survey. They fell 0.7% on the month, with package tours alone responsible for 0.15 percentage point of the decline.

CPI details in the press release show that year-on-year energy inflation decreased to -4.5% in November, from -3.2%yoy in October, and food inflation declined 0.6pp to 5.5%YoY.

Services CPI inflation fell to 3.4%yoy in November from 3.9%yoy in October.

However, President Christine Lagarde reiterated Monday that inflation remains too high and has been so for too long.

What’s more, price pressures are widely anticipated to pick up again from December as statistical effects play out.

And while Euro-area economic confidence increased very marginally in November, Industrial Confidence dipped back towards its lowest level since 2013 (ex-COVID lockdowns)

The rally in bonds began after Spain earlier Wednesday reported a similar slowdown in inflation, but Bundesbank President Joachim Nagel has warned against letting up on the inflation fight too soon.

Officials can’t assume that price pressures will continue easing as rapidly as they have been during the past year, he said Tuesday.

However, folding in the German, Spanish, Belgian, and Irish data, Goldman Sachs revises down their Euro area headline inflation forecast to 2.50%YoY, and lower our core forecast to 3.86%YoY.

Hold up on those 'Mission Accomplished' banners for now.
