On Thursday The IFO institute’s (Institute for Economic Research) business climate index, based on a survey of 7,000 executives, increased to 106.6 from 106.4 in previous month.
That beats the expectations of 105.2.

This survey is highly respected due to its large sample size and historic correlation with German and wider European economic conditions. It tends to create market impact while released.

It’s a level of a composite index based on surveyed manufacturers, builders, wholesalers, and retailers.
