Asian upswing signals

Economic observers are currently focusing their attention strongly on China. The signs in China are increasingly pointing to an upswing. Should there be an additional settlement in the trade dispute with the USA, the second economically robust region of the world economy, the European economy could also see a turnaround. To date, only further stabilization can be reported. The sentix economic index for the Euro zone rose slightly to -0.3 points, after -2.2 points in the previous month.

Headlines of the month

  • The economy in the euro zone continued to stabilize at the beginning of April. The sentix overall economic index rises to -0.3, the highest value since November 2018.
  • Germany cannot keep up with this. Although expectations are improving here as well, the situation has dropped significantly by almost 10 points, with the result that the German economic index has fallen again.
  • The economic hopes of investors rest entirely on Asia ex Japan, where the signals continue to point to an up-swing. Since the US economy is also in an economic slowdown phase, but is still clearly expanding, there is also an upswing scenario for the global aggregate.
