Concerns about the health of the euro-zone economy have increased as inflation in the German factory gate has been updated.

Inflation in German factory output drops to 1.2%

The Federal Bureau of Statistics in Wiesbaden fell 0.4% in June from a 0.1% drop last month. The annual rate in Germany was 1.2%, or 0.7 percentage points from May. The reading of the inflation gauge is the lowest since December 2016 as ECB policymakers are preparing to reinvigorate stimulus and likely reduce borrowing costs.

Due to a 2.2% year-on-year rise, factory gate prices were only 0.9% higher per year if the component was not taken into account, unchanged from May.
