Recovery, even in Japan!

The spring revival in the economic data continues in March. We were able to survey a rise in the respective total indices for all world regions. This leads us to be optimistic for the upcoming publication of the OECD Leading Indicator! Even for the buffeted Euroland-region, the sentix total index rises for the third time in a row. Neither rising oil prices, unrest in the Middle-East nor the latently smoldering Euro-crisis were able to sway sentiment at the moment.

Report March 2012

Headlines of the month

  • The sentix economic index improves again in March and, with that, for the third time in a row, to -8,2 points. Both situational and expectational values were able to improve.
  • For Germany the dynamics are less pronounced, which is most probably due to the very high situational values.
  • In the USA there is a drop in the expectational component. The strong US Dollar and rising prices in oil seem to leave their mark more and more, here.
  • Comeback of two problem children: Japan and Eastern Europe stand out with the strongest rises in the respective total indexes. The weak Yen is an important support for Japan.
