  • As with June, there is a fairly wide range of estimates for core Eurozone Y/Y inflation, from 5.2% to 5.7% from the initial analyst reports we have seen, centring on a 5.4% median. That would represent limited progress from June’s 5.5% outturn. Headline is seen decelerating more sharply, to 5.2% from June’s 5.5% (with a relatively narrower range of estimates from 5.1-5.3%).
  • While goods and commodity price pressures continue to subside, they remain elevated for services – the latter of which was again the second biggest contributor to June’s print.
