    The consensus assumes an increase in main inflation to 3.6% year-on-year in August compared to a reading of 3.2% year-on-year in July. Core inflation is expected to fall to 4.3% year-on-year compared to 4.7% year-on-year last month.
    The ECB is starting a two-day meeting today before announcing a decision on interest rates.
