Headwinds increase again

After several months of improvement in investors' assessments of the economic situation and expectations, there is a new headwind for economic development at the beginning of March. In the Eurozone, the economic situation scores improved again, for the fifth time in a row. However, the economic expectations show that we are by no means at the beginning of an upswing. Eurozone economic expectations dropped sharply to -13 points. The situation is similar in the other regions of the world. The expectation values are characterised by clear de-clines across the board.

Full report March 2023

Headlines of the month

  • The sentix economic indices fall by 3.1 points to -11.1 points in March. Even if a recession could be averted for the time being, the overall situation remains fragile. The slump in economic expectations by 7 points shows that the coming months could be even tougher.
  • In Germany, too, the overall index fell by almost 3 points to -9.6 points. While the situation improved slightly, expectations dropped sharply to -11.8 points.
  • Internationally, the picture is comparable. While the assessments of the current situation improved slightly in almost all regions, the expectations dropped, in some cases significantly. In the USA we measure a decline of almost 6 points and even in the Asia ex Japan region, the only region with still positive values, economic expectations fell by 5.2 points.
