Denmark: Business confidence drops in February

February 26, 2016

The business confidence indicator developed by Statistics Denmark (DST) fell to minus 7 points in February, which was down from the minus 4 points seen in January. January’s figure had marked the highest reading since May 2014. The indicator remains under the 0-point threshold, which indicates that pessimists outnumber optimists. The indicator has been in negative territory since May 2014.

According to DST, February’s reading came mainly on the back of a decrease in completed inventories and in the confidence indicator for production.

FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast panelists expect gross fixed investment growth to reach 1.3% in 2016, which is down 0.1 percentage points from last month’s forecast. For 2017, panelists forecast an expansion of 3.1%.
