The gauge of economic sentiment in Switzerland probably dropped to -1.0 in July, according to the median experts’ forecast. In June, the index came in at 0.1, that was the weakest since December 2012.
The ZEW (Zentrum für Europäische Wirtschaftsforschung) economic expectations index is published monthly. The indicator reflects the difference between the share of analysts that are optimistic and those that are pessimistic about the expected economic development in Switzerland over the next six months. A positive figure indicates that the proportion of optimists is larger than that of the pessimists.
The ZEW is due to release an official report at 9:00 GMT. A higher-than-expected reading would certainly bolster demand for the Swiss franc.
