German inflation gains suddenly in June

In June, German inflation surged, as Thursday’s regional data suggested. The report pointed to a sturdy upswing in the German economy, driving price pressures as euro zone inflation gets closer to the ECB’s objective.

The data arose just days after ECB head Mario Draghi suggested that the bank's asset-purchase program would turn to be less accommodative in 2018 because regional surge pace as well as inflation trends get back, following a period of descending prices.

In another sign of ascending price pressures in the 19-member trading bloc, in Spain consumer prices inched up more than expected in June, as preliminary figures disclosed on Thursday.

In June annual inflation inched up to 1.9%in June from 1.7% in May in the German state of Hesse, as the data revealed.  It also gained in Brandenburg, Saxony and Baden-Wuerttemberg. Meanwhile, it stood still in Bavaria and North Rhine-Westphalia.

A Reuters survey, conducted before the publication of the regional data stated that EU-harmonized consumer price inflation went down to 1.3% in June from May’s outcome of 1.4%.
