  • Prior 54.0

Preliminary readings can be found here. Slightly softer figures here than the initial estimates but it's not going to change the outlook all too much. Spain's decent beat earlier in the day has also been pretty much offset by Italy's dismal prints so very much still a mixed picture for the time being. If anything, it just highlights that there isn't growing confidence that the economy is picking up in Q4 just yet.
