The GfK Consumer Climate Indicator for Germany is set to rise to 10.4 in June of 2017 from 10.2 in May and beating market consensus of 10.2. It is the highest reading since October 2001, as consumers are confident domestic economy is on the upswing amid continued strength in employment. In May, economic expectation went up for the 3rd time in a row to reach 34.8, marking the highest value in two years. Also, income expectation increased 1 point to 58.5, supported by consistently well-positioned German labor market situation. In contrast, propensity to buy dropped 4.5 points to 55.7 but remained at a historically high level. "Risks for consumers primarily originate from possible economic political shocks from elsewhere, for example as a result of increasingly protectionist trends in the United States," GfK said in a statement. Consumer Confidence in Germany averaged 5.76 from 2001 until 2017, reaching an all time high of 16.80 in March of 2001 and a record low of -3.50 in March of 2003.
