TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The GfK Consumer Climate Indicator in Germany dropped to a six-month low of -7.3 heading into January 2021, from a revised -6.8 in the prior month but above market consensus of -8.8, as sentiment was hit by stricter restrictive measures to curb the rapid spread of coronavirus. The income expectations sub-index declined 1 point to 3.6, while the gauge for economic outlook rose 4.6 points to 4.4 and the willingness to buy indicator increased 6.1 points to 36.6. “There is reason to fear that the consumer climate is about to enter a very difficult phase in the coming weeks. Any relaxation or recovery can certainly only come when the infection rates have dropped so far that the strict restrictions can be loosened once more”, GfK consumer expert Rolf Buerkl said.
