Exchange Rate in Germany
Germany - Exchange RateAnnegret Kramp-Karrenbauer was elected the new chief of Germany’s Christian Democrats (CDU) on 7 December, replacing Chancellor Angela Merkel as analysts question whether the economy is beginning to show signs of a prolonged loss of steam, or is simply being negatively affected by a conflux of one-off factors. In the third quarter, the economy shrunk for the first time in over two years on the back of weakening domestic demand and a contraction in exports. Additionally, the automotive sector struggled due to new emission regulations, dealing a blow to the economy. Data from the fourth quarter of this year paints a somewhat grim picture. The composite PMI averaged significantly lower in October-November than in the third quarter, while consumer confidence is expected to ease further in December to its lowest level since June 2017. Although business confidence remained in optimistic territory, it moderated for the third consecutive month in December. However, the unemployment rate continued to fall in the same month, while retail sales grew at the strongest clip in over a year in October.
