Freight quantities will increase in almost every sub-sector of the German transport industry in the coming six months. Only services providing courier, express and package (CEP) will decrease.

ZEW Indicator of Economic Sentiment

ZEW Indicator of Economic Sentiment - Economic Sentiment Remains at a High Level

In March 2015, the ZEW Indicator of Economic Sentiment for Germany has increased for the fifth consecutive time. Compared to the previous month, the indicator has gained 1.8 points to a reading of 54.8 (long-term average: 24.7 points). This is the indicator's highest value since February 2014. "Economic sentiment in Germany remains at a high level. In particular, the continuing positive development of the domestic economy confirms the expectations of the experts. At the same time, limited progress is being made with regard to solving the Ukraine conflict and the sovereign debt crisis in Greece. This has a dampening effect on sentiment," says ZEW President Professor Clemens Fuest. The assessment of the current situation in Germany has improved notably. Increasing by 9.6 points, the index now stands at 55.1 points. read more

Financial Market Survey Switzerland

ZEW-CS Financial Market Test Switzerland - Economic Activity Expectations Recover from Swiss Franc Shock

In March 2015 the ZEW-CS Indicator has risen by 35.1 points to a reading of minus 37.9 points. Thus the economic outlook for the Swiss economy has partially brightened again after having severely deteriorated in February. To some extent this improvement may be attributed to the EUR/CHF exchange rate, which, contrary to worst fears, appears to have levelled off at around the 1.07 mark for the time being. The ZEW-CS Indicator reflects the expectations of the surveyed financial market experts regarding the economic development in Switzerland on a six-month time horizon. It is calculated monthly by the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW) Mannheim, in cooperation with Credit Suisse (CS), Zurich. read more
