    Key Quotes

    “This softness in the headline component is likely to be a result of persistent weakness in energy prices. Unlike January where positive base effects from the energy component pushed the headline up, there will be no positive energy-component base effects in February. We expect food prices on a yoy basis to continue to soften for a third month in a row.

    The core component should print at 1.2% yoy in February, on our estimates. We expect German HICP inflation to average 0.7% in 2016 and 1.7% in 2017, while the core metric should average 1.3% in 2016 and 1.4% in 2017.”
