The next surprise at the start of the year

The riots surrounding the conflict between the US and Iran, which dominated the news at the end of the week, were either ignored by investors or are not considered to be crucial for the economy. This is the result of the sentix economic survey, which brought a further improvement in the economic assessment of the global econo-my at the beginning of the year. This is the third surprise in a row for the "first mover"! The data for all regions of the world are improving, especially in Asia ex Japan.
