Germany's financial professionals are the most upbeat about the outlook for the country than ant time in the last two decades, the latest ZEW Economic Sentiment survey shows, as a slowdown in the spread of Covid-19 infections has boosted optimism amongst investors.
The index rose 13.7 points in May to 84.4 points - the highest level since February 2000. The current conditions index also rose, up 8.7 points to 40.1 points.
Inflation expectations for the eurozone rose as well, up 2.5 points at 77.6 with the "vast majority of experts" seeing inflation higher in the next 6 months. This is no great surprise and fits in with the European Central Bank's own projections, although they see higher prices this year as transitory and slowing in both 2022 and 2023.
