Notable Takeaways from the Report:

  • Considerable Decline in inflation expectations provides a cause for hope
  • However, the prospect of stagflation over the next six months remains

The EU ZEW economic sentiment study surveys around 275 German institutional investors and analyst who are highly informed in topics relating to the future economic landscape due to the nature of their jobs. All participants are asked to rate the relative economic outlook for the next six months with readings below 0 indicating pessimism and readings over 0 indicating optimism.

The latest reading has the figure approaching the March 2020 low (-49.5) at the time when the economic effects of the pandemic were clear to see.
