Spanish Inflation Accelerating to Fastest Pace Since 2012

The European Central Bank is insisting that the spike will prove temporary, with price pressures expected to slow again next year. Data for Germany are due later on Monday, and Eurostat will report figures for the 19-nation euro area on Tuesday.
