Pretty good first quarter: what will the next one bring us…?
Japan’s Quarterly Tankan is still pretty weak…
Did I already show this? Retail sales in the bigger economies in Europe…
Chart that filters out the daily fluctuations in the foreign exchange markets and shows the trend…

Cool chart, basically showing the importance of the export sector of Germany…
