Eurozone inflation once again lower than expected. After lower-than-expected readings from Spain, Germany, France (and also Italy), this is not a major surprise. However, the latest readings pose some challenges for the ECB, as inflation is still above the 2% target.

According to preliminary estimates, the euro area inflation rate fell to 2.4% year-on-year in November 2023, reaching its lowest level since July 2021 and falling below the market consensus of 2.7%. Meanwhile, the core indicator, which excludes volatile food and energy prices, also fell to 3.6%, reaching its lowest level since April 2022 and ranking below forecasts of 3.9%.

Energy costs fell by 11.5% (compared to -11.2% in October) and inflation rates fell for services (4.0% vs. 4.6%), food, alcohol and tobacco (6.9% vs. 7.4%) and non-energy industrial goods (2.9% vs. 3.5%). On a monthly basis, consumer prices fell by 0.5% in November, the largest monthly decline since January 2020.

The Eurozone unemployment rate held steady at 6.5% this month, underlining that the recent economic slowdown has not yet had much of an impact on labour market conditions.
