Eurozone investor confidence defies analysts, drops again

Investor confidence appears to be ever fragile in the Eurozone, and it's fallen again in July. Down from -11.6 to -12.6, analysts had forecast an improvement to -10.0.

This is mainly caused by the assessment of the current situation which has made no headway for the past months. Investors' expectations remain above average, institutional investors are even becoming more optimistic. For Germany, the US and Japan, the composite indices rise significantly. Here, investors are extremely positively predisposed towards the economy. However, in the emerging markets regions, composite indices fall strongly, with the assessments of the current situation as a special burden.
