    Euro area Q2 GDP revised lower as France stagnates (again):

    The euro area economy grew just 0.3% q/q in the second quarter according to updated numbers from Eurostat, less than the 0.4% growth rate estimated initially. This translates into a 1.2% annual change through Q2 vs. 1% through Q1.

    Germany, France, and Italy all saw downward revisions to Q2 growth with the German economy up 0.4% q/q in Q2 (vs. 0.5% initially) and the Italian economy up 0.2% (vs. 0.3%). France recorded unchanged economic output in Q2 (down from 0.2%) though it needs to be said that Q1 was revised up a bit to 0.7% from 0.6%.

    Spain remains the best performer of the 'big 4' by far with growth of 1% in Q2 and available data for July suggests that the country has also begun Q3 in strong fashion. Perhaps another 1% increase is on the cards this quarter!
