Live European Chart Pack

This chart pack is an aggregation of high-frequency economic and financial data for Europe. With the help of the Macrobond platform, we put together a dashboard that is broken out between daily, weekly, and monthly releases. 

High frequency data points are pivotal during times of high volatility/downturn and they are key in making sense of the fallout from the COVID-19 crisis and the subsequent recovery.
