Latest data released by Eurostat - 3 July 2018

  • Prior +0.1%; revised to -0.1%
  • Retail sales +1.4% vs +1.6% y/y expected
  • Prior +1.7%; revised to +1.6%

Weaker than expected readings and lower revisions. Not a positive report by the look of things. And certainly doesn't underscore improving consumption patterns in the Eurozone economy - though this is a bit of a lagging indicator.
