Denmark: Businesses confidence deteriorates in October to five-year low

October 30, 2014

In October, the business confidence indicator developed by Statistics Denmark (DST) fell from September’s minus 9 points to minus 16 points. The result marked the lowest level since June 2009. The indicator remains well below the 0-point threshold, which indicates that pessimists outnumber optimists.

According to DST, September’s reading came on the back of a deterioration in overall backlog, while completed inventories improved over the previous month.

FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast panelists expect gross fixed investment growth to reach 2.4% in 2014, which is down 0.1 percentage points from last month’s forecast. For 2015, panelists forecast an expansion of 2.5%.
