Third consecutive increase

The sentix economic indices for the euro zone and many other regions improved in July for the third time in a row. The Euroland overall index rose by 6.6 points to -18.2 points. The biggest leap forward was made by the values for Switzerland. Here the overall index rises from -14.4 points to -1.6 points! Nevertheless, too much optimism seems out of place. On the one hand, expectations are falling slightly in almost all regions. On the other hand, investors continue to assume that the economic slump caused by the Corona crisis will not be offset within a year!
