“For core inflation, we expect an increase to 1.2% y-o-y in July from 1.1% in June.”
“In regard to Euro area flash reading of HICP, We forecast it to remain at 2.0% y-o-y in July. The support from the energy price increase should weaken from last month.”
“For core inflation, we forecast an increase to 1.0% y-o-y in July from 0.9% in June. This is partly due to an unwinding of seasonal distortions caused by the different timing of holidays this year compared with last year.”
