Economic Outlook Almost Unchanged
ZEW-CS Financial Market Test Switzerland
The assessment of the current economic situation in Switzerland brightens up distinctly. The corresponding balance improved by 15.9 points and reached the 13.3 threshold - climbing back into positive territory for the first time in 18 months.
Although the share of analysts expecting a rise in inflation increases by 20.5 percentage points, the overriding majority of 62.3 percent of analysts anticipates an unchanged inflation rate in the coming six months.
Regarding the short-term interest rate environment, the lion's share (68.9 percent) of financial market experts still predicts that rates will hold steady at low levels in the next half-year.
Nevertheless, the share of analysts expecting rising interest rates augments by 10.6 percentage points. Thus, the balance for shortterm interest rate expectations climbed by 15.7 points to the 31.1 mark.
Sentiment among the financial market analysts toward the Swiss stock market has brightened noticeable. Two thirds of the financial market experts (65 percent) expect the Swiss Market Index (SMI) to gain terrain in a six-month timeframe. On the other hand, one out of five participants sees the SMI stabilising at the present index levels.
