EUR and FTSE MIB Unfazed as Italian Confidence Stabilises

EUR and FTSE MIB Unfazed as Italian Confidence Stabilises

Justin McQueen, Analyst

EURUSD Analysis and Talking Points

  • Italian Consumer and Business Confidence Stabilises Amid Reduced Political Uncertainty
  • French Consumer Confidence Falls to Lowest in 2yrs

Italian Consumer and Business Confidence Stabilises

The Euro and FTSE MIB were largely unmoved following the release of the latest Italian consumer and business confidence surveys. With regard to the consumer survey, the confidence climate in June rose from 113.9 to 116.2. This followed the improvement in economic and future components, which offset the decline in the personal and current components. In terms of business confidence, this dipped to 106.9 from 107.6, however, the overall business composite reading had stabilised. It is likely that the recovery in both consumer and business confidence had stemmed from the reduced uncertainty in regard to Italian politics, given that the league and 5-star party had agreed to form a coalition.

French Consumer Confidence at Lowest Level in 2yrs

In contrast, French consumer confidence missed expectations to fall to its lowest level since August 2016 at 97, below the expected 100. As a reminder, earlier this month INSEE forecast slower French economic growth for the rest of 2018 amid a earlier strength in the Euro, coupled with higher oil prices and uncertainty over US protectionist measures.
