TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The German economy expanded a seasonally-adjusted 0.3 percent on quarter in the three months to March of 2018, following a 0.6 percent growth in the previous period and matching the preliminary estimate. It was the weakest pace of expansion since the September quarter of 2016.
Still, it marked the 15th straight quarter of growth, making this Germany’s longest upswing since 1991. Positive contribution to GDP mainly came from gross fixed capital formation (0.3 percentage points) and household consumption (0.2 percentage points). Meanwhile, government spending (-0.1 percentage points) and net exports (-0.1 percentage points) had a downward effect to GDP growth. In addition, changes in inventories substracted 0.1 percentage points from growth.
