Spain Economic outlook with a view on the real estate sector

By

The world economy continues to improve, albeit within an environment in which risks are still present. In Spain, current activity trends confirm that growth remains strong. We expect GDP growth to remain around 3,0% in 2017 and 2018 (2,7%). Housing demand is picking up, as prices have stabilized or even increased significantly in certain regions.

Spain | Economic recovery gains traction during 2Q17

By

The recovery of the Spanish economy strengthens during 2Q17. Quarterly GDP growth is estimated to accelerate up to 1.0 or 1.1%. If this forecast is confirmed, it would imply a slight upward bias on the 2017 growth considered in BBVA’s scenario (3.0%).

Eurozone | The outlook remains positive as political risks ease

By , , , ,

GDP grew 0.5% QoQ in 1Q while soft data suggests higher momentum in 2Q (BBVAe: 0.6% QoQ) and foreign trade is strong. But industrial output and retail sales decelerated in 1Q. Inflation pressures are still distant as wages growth remains subdued. Despite the more upbeat outlook and the ease of political uncertainty, risks to short-term growth remain tilted to the downside.

The beginning of 2017 shows a good performance of fiscal stance

By

Spain reached the stability target in 2016, due to expenditure containment and fiscal measures adopted in the last quarter. In 2017, in a favourable economic environment, the recent performance of public accounts suggests that the deficit adjustment continues. 2017 and 2018 stability objectives are achievable, but will require a tight control of public expenditure.

Financial deleveraging: two steps forward; one step back

By , ,

After months of persistent regulatory tightening in domestic financial markets, China’s authorities unexpectedly fine-tuned their stance of monetary prudence by injecting liquidity into the banking sector. We interpret the authorities’ strategy as “two steps forward one step back”. After the market stabilizes and absorbs their messages, they are set to leap forward again.

Global growth is still gaining momentum in 2Q17, but there are some signs of stabilisation

By , , , ,

Global growth accelerated in 1Q to 0.9% QoQ and 2Q data so far suggest further global momentum (1% QoQ). Confidence data remain very positive, especially for developed economies, while hard data point to higher investment. Moreover, the exports recovery remains on track, partly explained by upward trend in investment in recent quarters.

Argentina Economic Outlook. Second Quarter 2017

By , , , , ,

The economy continued to grow in 1Q17 in line with our forecast of 2.8% Y/Y. Inflation is moving away from the BCRA target and will reach 19.5% (INDEC) Y/Y in December, driven by tariffs and core inflation that does not yield. The restrictive monetary and accommodative fiscal policy mix strengthens the peso, but we expect a greater pace of depreciation in 2H17

China | Now comes moderation

By ,

After registering a stronger-than-expected performance in Q1, China’s economy started to show more signs of moderation in April. Growth moderation is due in part to the authorities’ monetary prudence and tight regulations targeted at the risky shadow banking activities as well as the overheating property market.

Presentation Brazil Economic Outlook. Second quarter 2017

Activity indicators suggest that the economy started to grow again in 1Q17 after having contracted for eight consecutive quarters. We expect GDP to grow by 0.9% in 2017 and by 1.8% in 2018. The approval of a social security reform would allow the government to adjust public expenditure and meet the new fiscal rule, and therefore to consolidate the prospects of recovery.
