- In October, €-coin dropped significantly (to -0.67, from -0.18 in September), confirming the underlying weakness of euro-area activity.
- This decline is due to a deterioration in financial, demand and business confidence indicators.
- The €-coin indicator developed by the Bank of Italy provides a summary index of the current economic situation in the euro area.

- The next publication dates for €-coin are Friday, 1 December and Friday, 5 January 2024 (to be confirmed).
