ZEW Indicator of Economic Sentiment

ZEW Indicator of Economic Sentiment - Economic Outlook Improves

The ZEW Indicator of Economic Sentiment for Germany has increased in November 2015. Gaining 8.5 points compared to the previous month, the index now stands at 10.4 points (long-term average: 24.8 points). The indicator has improved for the first time following seven consecutive declines. "The outlook for the German economy is brightening again towards the end of the year. Economic pessimism appears not to have increased after the terror attacks in Paris. The currently high level of consumption in Germany, the recent decline in the external value of the euro, and the ongoing recovery in the United States are likely to bolster the robust development of the German economy," comments ZEW President Professor Clemens Fuest. read more
