“Germany releases its first estimate of Q2 GDP today, and we’re in line with consensus in looking for a mild contraction of -0.1% q/q.

With nearly a 2% q/q contraction in IP for the quarter, its worst result since 2012, the manufacturing sector will be a substantial drag on German growth through the middle of the year.”
