Euro Area Inflation Slows to 2.5%

In June, the inflation rate fell in Germany, France, and Spain but slightly increased in Italy to 0.9%. Flash estimates for the Euro Area are predicted to slow down to 2.5%. Despite this, ECB President Lagarde mentioned at the ECB Forum that there isn’t enough evidence yet that inflation threats are over.

Therefore, policymakers are unlikely to cut interest rates soon. However, markets still expect one or two more cuts this year.
