Background information on the sentix economic indicators

A very deep recession?!

The general conditions for the global economy continued to deteriorate at the beginning of September. While in Europe the signs have been pointing to a considerable recession for some time, there are now increasing signs of a corresponding development at the global level. The sentix business cycle indices for all regions and countries under consideration are deteriorating. The third decline in the values for China is of particular importance. But the recessionary environment is also deepening in the Eurozone.

Unchanged picture

The global economic situation at the beginning of August is essentially unchanged from the previous month. On the positive side, the situation and expectations have not deteriorated further.

The international picture is also comparable. For the USA and Switzerland, however, the developments are somewhat weaker.

"We are also harming ourselves"

War only knows victims. The traces of the Ukraine conflict are also becoming increasingly visible in the economy. The sanctions against Russia are having an effect, on enemies and friends alike. Last month, the "first mover" economic index clearly pointed the way towards recession. At the beginning of May, the downturn deepened further. Europe is hit particularly hard. The overall Eurozone index drops to -22.6 points. And for Germany we report an all-time low in economic expectations. In other words: it's coming thick and fast.
