Euro German IFO Business Climate

The Day will remain calm as a single economic indicator is there and that is German’s IFO Business Climate Data. It’s a leading indicator of economic health – businesses react quickly to market conditions, and changes in their sentiment can be an early signal of future economic activity such as spending, hiring, and investment. This data is derived via a survey of about 9,000 businesses which asks respondents to rate the relative level of current business conditions and expectations for the next 6 months. This survey is highly respected due to its large sample size and historic correlation with German and wider Euro zone economic conditions.
