Bundesbank forecasts that German growth will soften this quarter

  • The Bundesbank expects Germany's economy to slow in Q2 after unusually mild weather boosted growth in Q1, when GDP expanded 0.8% on quarter and an annualized 3.3%.
  • The bank believes domestic demand will be the main driver of the economy, but it warned about economic risks in some emerging markets and geopolitical uncertainty in Eastern Europe.
  • However, the weaker expansion "should not be interpreted as a slowdown in the underlying economic momentum," the bank said.
  • The euro is +0.1% at $1.3707, while the DAX is -0.8%.
