€-coin rises slightly in December

€-coin rose slightly in December (from 0.16 to 0.21), nevertheless confirming the signs of a slowdown in economic activity overall in the fourth quarter.

This month's small improvement mainly reflects the positive trend of some of the indicators of demand, including new car registrations. €-coin continues to be held back by the less favourable opinions of firms and households about the economy, linked to the marked increase in positive cases of COVID-19 and the rise in energy costs.
