Median forecast suggests a 0.4% growth rate in the second quarter (just like in the first quarter). Meanwhile analysts also say that growth has probably slowed in France and Italy, which would underline uneven recovery in the single currency area, where Germany leads compared to other economies.
The yen weakened against the U.S. dollar after its Friday rally. Data showed that Japan Current account growth has persisted for 12 months and came in at ¥558.6 billion. The indicator has overcome its level seen before the 2011 catastrophe for the first time. This fact suggests substantial volumes of capital inflows from overseas.
