Third decline in a row

The global economy is running at full speed, but momentum is weakening. The slowdown in the Asia ex Japan region is also contributing to this. In the Eurozone, the recovery of the current economic situation continues. At 30.8 points, the assessment reached its highest level since October 2018. However, here, too, the expectations component lost a significant 15.8 points, marking the third decline in a row. The rule of a three-point decline should be taken seriously. As a result, the overall index for the Eurozone drops by 7.6 points. Germany's economy continues to be in boom-like shape. It rises for the 15th time in a row to 38.5 points. The expectations component halves.
