Preliminary data shows German consumer prices declined in September for the third consecutive month, German statistics office Destatis said Tuesday.
Consumer prices fell 0.2% on month and on year measured by national standards. Economists polled by The Wall Street Journal had forecast that prices would remain flat by national standards both month-on-month and year-on-year.
Consumer prices fell 0.4% on month and on year in EU-harmonized standards, more than the 0.2% decline expected by economists polled by The Wall Street Journal.
