German business confidenceThe German analysts and investors have kept their negative mood in September, according to the latest data from the Center for European Economic Research ZEW. The German business confidence continues to retreat in September.

The market consensus had set a score of 5 points.

The reached level proved to be the lowest until December 2012, when the index also registered 6.9 points. The index of current conditions even sank to 25.4 points from 44.3 in August, according to a survey by Mannheim-based think tank. Analysts predicted level of 40 points in September.

Everyone should adhere to the rules compiled together”, he added
