Inflation Rate in Europe Soars to Six-Year High

"The inflation rate in the 13-nation euro area rose to 3 percent this month from 2.6 percent in October, the European Union's statistics office in Luxembourg said today."

"An index of executive and consumer sentiment fell to a 20-month low of 104.8 from 106 in October, according to a separate report."

We hope that it is just related to the surge of oil price and food in the past few months. No Worries as long as it is a temporary phenomenon and not a structural one otherwise the ECB credibility will be impaired.
