Latest Eurozone data 11 December 2017

  • Estimation of French Q4 GDP is +0.5% q/q

I mentioned in my earlier preview post that this is a survey on business managers on their estimation of how the French industrial sector is performing.

Not a market mover, but again, like a lot of Eurozone data it's an indicator of general sentiment within the region and a positive number like this does not do the euro any harm.

It's the accumulation of little positive data points like this that's helping economists to project higher future growth within the Eurozone - as seen here in the Bloomberg survey.
