Germany Zew Sentiment Falls More than Expected
The ZEW Indicator of Economic Sentiment for Germany fell to 79.8 in June of 2021 from an over 21-year high of 84.4 in May and well below market forecasts of 86. Meanwhile, the indicator for the current economic situation in Germany jumped to -9.1 from -40.1, back to the pre-pandemic level of August 2019. “The economic recovery is progressing. Although the ZEW Indicator of Economic Sentiment has experienced a drop in June, it remains at a very high level. The decline in expectations is probably largely due to the considerably better assessment of the economic situation, which is now back at pre-crisis levels. The financial market experts therefore continue to expect a strong economic recovery for the next six months,” comments ZEW President Professor Achim Wambach.

Germany Zew Economic Sentiment Index
In Germany, the ZEW Economic Sentiment Index measures the level of optimism that analysts have about the expected economic developments over the next 6 months. The survey covers up to 350 financial and economic analysts. The index is constructed as the difference between the percentage share of analysts that are optimistic and the percentage of analysts that are pessimistic about the development of the economy. Therefore, the ZEW indicator measures the confidence on a scale of -100 (all analysts expect the economy to deteriorate) up to 100 (all analysts expect it to improve). A 0 value indicates neutrality.
