The GfK Consumer Climate Indicator for Germany stood at 10.6 going into November 2018, unchanged from October's figure but slightly above market consensus of 10.5. The sub-index assessing consumers' propensity to buy increased by 3 points to 55.9, as consumers showed a general feeling of job security, encouraging them to make larger purchases. On the other hand, the sub-index measuring economic expectations dropped for the first time in three months by 8.1 points to 19.0, mainly due to external factors, such as the fear of a global trade dispute and the threat of a hard Brexit. Also, the gauge measuring income expectations declined by 3.5 points to 54.4, in the wake of a weaker domestic economic outlook. Consumer Confidence in Germany averaged 6.15 Index Points from 2001 until 2018, reaching an all time high of 16.80 Index Points in March of 2001 and a record low of -3.50 Index Points in March of 2003.
