Poland’s annualized industrial production probably expanded 2.2% in July, according to the median forecast by experts, following another 1.7% increase in June. If so, this would be the slowest rate of increase since August 2013. The index reflects the change in overall inflation-adjusted value of output in sectors such as manufacturing, mining and utilities. In case output expanded more than anticipated, this would have a bullish effect on the zloty. The Central Statistical Office of Poland is expected to release the official report at 12:00 GMT.
Producer prices in the country probably decreased 1.8% in July compared to the same month a year ago, according to market expectations, following another 1.7% slump in June. This index measures the average change over time in the selling prices, received by domestic producers for their output in the wholesale market. The PPI differs from the CPI, which measures the change in prices from consumer’s perspective. Lower than expected producer prices usually have a bearish effect on the national currency. The PPI data is due out at 12:00 GMT.
