    Germany’s Bundesbank, in its monthly report, revised the 2016 inflation forecast lower to 1.75% from the previous forecast of 2%.

    Key points

    “Global collapse in crude oil prices could push headline HICP rates into negative territory in the months ahead”

    “Could see some pickup in German GDP in Q1, key driver of economic growth still domestic demand”
