(Reading time: 2 - 3 minutes)
In November, companies in industry as a whole became somewhat more optimistic again. Although the current business situation has deteriorated, this was to be expected in view of the negative business expectations for the next six months in the past ifo surveys. On the positive side, business expectations for the next six months in November are now less pessimistic. In this part of the survey, respondents have to indicate whether they expect the business situation to become more favourable, remain the same or become less favourable over the next six months. The balance value is the difference in percentages between the more favourable and less favourable answers. It improved from minus 40.0 to minus 31.1, which is still a very poor value...

(Reading time: 2 - 3 minutes)

(Reading time: 2 - 3 minutes)
  At the beginning of August, after a long period of maximum defensiveness, the capital market seismograph delivered a first easing signal for equity investors. At that time, there was for the first time again a slight decline in the probabilities for negative turbulence in favour of the probability for positive turbulence.
