German economic data headlines the calendar in European trading hours. The final revision of third-quarter GDP data is expected to confirm initial estimates showing a quarterly increase of 0.3 percent. Meanwhile, November’s IFO Survey of business confidence is forecast to show the headline Business Climate gauge rebounded to 107.7, erasing October’s downtick to match the print recorded in September.

Euro-area economic data has underperformed relative to expectations since late August according to data from Citigroup, opening the door for a downside surprise. Such an outcome may weigh on the Euro as traders consider the possibility of further easing from the ECB.

While the central bank’s President Mario Draghi talked down speculation about introducing negative deposit rates yesterday, the argument for some kind further action remains compelling. This month’s surprise rate cut followed an unexpected drop in the year-on-year CPI inflation rate to 0.7 percent, the weakest in four years. Since then, economists have dramatically revised down median price growth forecasts and markets in kind, with inflation bets priced into bond yields down dramatically across the maturity spectrum.

Yesterday’s flash estimate of Eurozone Composite PMI showed factory- and service-sector activity grew at the weakest pace in three months in November, warning that lackluster growth will put further downward pressure on price levels. That suggests the ECB may have to act regardless of Mr Draghi’s protestations (although in fairness, the course of action to be taken need not include negative deposit rates per se). We remain short EURUSD.
