The news that the Spanish economy only contracted by 0.1%* in Q2, split opinions on whether this was a sign that the Eurozone was out of trouble. *(CNBC, 30 Jul 2013)

Vantage FX, Head of Market Analysis Jay Mawji commented:

“Generally, the slowing pace of contraction does indeed indicate the beginning of the end of an economic crisis. Certainly, when we look at the Eurozone as a whole, any economic data that suggests that the economy isn't worsening as much as previous periods tends to give the Euro some support.

“The Spanish case is somewhat 'blighted' by foreign investment from Japan and other nations engaged in the 'currency wars', which has landed on the Spanish doorstep by default as opposed to being a genuine interest. Essentially, we know from experience that we shouldn't shine too much positive light on the Eurozone and particularly not on the Spanish economy.”

However, couple this with the fact that the overall economic output across the currency bloc grew by 0.3% in Q2*, compared to 6 quarters of shrinkage before this and it is easy to see why some are keen to be positive. *(The Independent, 15 Aug 2013)
