German inflation slightly up in November

The reading was the highest rate since June and matched a Reuters forecast.

It marked the seventh month in a row that the inflation figure remained well below the ECB’s target level of close to but below 2%.

On the month, EU-harmonised prices fell by 0.8% in November. Analysts had expected a reading of -0.7%. (Reporting by Joseph Nasr Editing by Madeline Chamberss)
