The US Commerce Department estimated a gross domestic product growth for April-June quarter at a 6.6% annualised growth. Which now lifts US GDP above pre-pandemic levels.

The US has raised inflation expectations in 2022 due to continuing supply shortages and increased freight rates. Personal consumption expenditures price index expected to rise to 4% in the third quarter and 4.1% in the fourth, double the Federal Reserve’s 2% target.

German business expectations fell sharply in August as supply chain disruptions and concerns surrounding the resurgence of COVID-19 infections. The business climate index produced by the Ifo Institute fell to 99.4 in August from 100.8 in the previous month.

The ECB published revised forward guidance to incorporate the findings of its strategy review, which altered its primary policy target to make it more tolerant of above-target inflation. The new wording states that interest rates will not rise until the ECB forecasts that inflation will reach its 2% target and price growth persists durably.
