Economic Expectations Diminish at High Level

ZEW-CS Financial Market Test Switzerland

Mannheim, (lifePR) - Economic expectations for Switzerland diminished somewhat in November. In the wake of the strong surge recorded in previous months, the relevant ZEW-CS- Indicator lost ground by 8.6 points, but continued to hover at a high level of 56.4 points. This reveals the current Financial Market Test Switzerland, carried out monthly by the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW) in cooperation with Credit Suisse (CS).

Furthermore, the assessment of the current economic situation once again turned out to be less pessimistic in November. The corresponding indicator increased by 8.8 points to minus 46.2 points. The lion's share of the financial market experts surveyed (75.0 percent) still expect shortterm interest rates to remain unchanged in the coming months. Inflation expectations are on the rise in November. Although 55.0 percent of the survey participants still anticipate that inflation will hold steady, 42.5 percent believe that inflation rates will climb on a sixmonth horizon.

The focal point of this month's "special question," is directed at China's impact on international equilibrium. For example, the survey participants were asked about potential problems of the Chinese Yuan to compete with other currencies, such as the Euro or the US Dollar. In this context, a majority of the responses pointed at the political stability and the openness of China as a main obstacle.
