In November, the 3-month moving average of consumer confidence dropped from minus 53.0 points in October to minus 56.0 points in November, a new all-time record low.

Simultaneously, the 3-month moving average of business confidence deteriorated from minus 18.7 points in October to minus 20.7 in November. Moreover, the 3-month moving average of the economic climate indicator continued the downward trend in place since July 2010, falling from minus 2.9 points in October to minus 3.5 points in November, which represents the lowest value of the series.
