Germany Import Prices Fall At Slower Pace

Germany's import prices declined at a slower pace in November on weak energy prices, data from Destatis revealed Monday.

On a yearly basis, import prices decreased by less-than-expected 2.1 percent, following a 3.5 percent fall in October. A similar slower fall was last seen in July. Prices were expected to decline 2.3 percent.

The annual drop was largely driven by a 12.9 percent decrease in energy prices. Excluding energy, import prices were 0.6 percent below the level of November 2018. Compared to October, prices dropped 0.1 percent.

Overall import prices rose 0.5 percent month-on-month, in contrast to a 0.1 percent fall in October. Economists had forecast a 0.4 percent rise.

At the same time, export prices slid 0.1 percent annually after easing 0.2 percent in October. On month, export prices remained flat in November, as seen in October.

Trading in leveraged currency contracts comes with substantial risk. You must be aware of these risks before opening an account to trade. High leverage amplifies gains as well as losses, leading to potential loss of the entire account balance. Trading in leveraged currency contracts may not be suitable for every investor. Never speculate using money that you cannot afford to lose.
