  1. Credit Constraint Indicator - From the Ifo Business Survey for July 2015

    Credit Constraints Edge Upwards

    Jul 30, 2015: Credit constraints for German companies rose to 15.4 percent in July from 15.1 percent last month. This put a stop to the trend towards undercutting seen in recent months. Companies, however, still have virtually no problems accessing bank credit. Details

  2. Results of the Ifo Business Survey for July 2015

    Ifo Business Climate for Eastern German Companies Brightens Considerably

    Jul 29, 2015: The Ifo Business Climate Index for Eastern German trade and industry rose sharply in July to 107.4 points from 105.8 index points in June, almost compensating for the declines of the past two months. The marked increase in the eastern German climate indicator was due to better assessments of the current business situation. At the same time, assessments of the six-month business outlook were less pessimistic. The agreement reached in principle on Greece is expected to boost the Eastern German economy. Details

    Readiness to Recruit Wanes in the German Economy

    Export Outlook Continues to Cloud Over

    Jul 28, 2015: The export expectations for German companies continued to decline this month, falling to 7.6 balance points in July from 9.2 points in June. The increase in exports continued to weaken. The expansive effects of the euro depreciation are slowly dissipating. In addition, cautious economic activity in several emerging economies is having a negative impact on the German export dynamic. Details

    Ifo Business Climate Index Rises

    Jul 27, 2015: The Ifo Business Climate Index for German trade and industry rose to 108.0 points in July from 107.5 points last month. Assessments of the current business situation improved significantly after last month’s setback. Business expectations were also somewhat more optimistic after declining for three consecutive months.

    German Service Sector: Ifo Business Climate Indicator for the Service Sector Falls

    Jul 27, 2015: The Ifo Business Climate Indicator for the German service sector fell to 25.9 balance points in July from 27.4 points last month. While very favourable assessments of the current business situation improved slightly, optimistic business expectations were scaled back.

  7. Ifo Export Climate for June 2015

    Export Climate Improves Slightly

    Jul 27, 2015: The Ifo Export Climate improved from 0.10 index points in May to 0.21 points in June. While corporate and consumer confidence abroad remained nearly unchanged, price competitiveness made a positive contribution. This was due to a more subdued dynamic in the euro exchange rate. After appreciating significantly in May, this dynamic virtually ground to a halt in June. Details

    Turbulence in Greece Fuels Uncertainty in the Saxon Economy

    Jul 22, 2015: The Ifo Business Climate Index for German trade and industry fell to 107.4 points in June from 108.5 last month. The climate indicators for the eastern German Länder overall and for Saxony also declined markedly. The Saxon companies surveyed are no longer as satisfied with their current business situation as last month. Pessimism regarding business expectations, by contrast, dissipated slightly. The turbulence surrounding Greece is increasingly unsettling companies in Saxony. Details

    Credit Constraints Hit Successive Historic Lows

    Jun 29, 2015: It has never been so easy for German companies to access bank credit. Credit constraints for German companies fell to 15.1 percent in June from 15.7 percent last month, hitting a historic low once again. The flood of money in Europe from the European Central Bank is having an impact. German companies are almost being pressed to accept bank loans. Details
