Germany Zew Sentiment Lowest since October 2008
The ZEW Indicator of Economic Sentiment for Germany fell to -55.3 in August of 2022 from -53.8 in July, the lowest since October 2008 and below market expectations of -53.8. Also, the current conditions subindex deteriorated further to -47.6 from -45.8, the lowest since April 2021. The financial market experts therefore expect a further decline in the already weak economic growth in Germany. "The still high inflation rates and the expected additional costs for heating and energy lead to a decrease in profit expectations for the private consumption sector. In contrast, the expectations for the financial sector are improving due to the supposed further increase in short-term interest rates”.
