ZEW index

The ZEW is a German economic sentiment indicator that measures the expectations of German institutional investors.

The ZEW is compiled by the Zentrum für Europäische Wirtschaftsforschung and is based on the opinion of 350 institutional investors and analysts. If the figure is below zero, it indicates pessimism; if it is above zero, it indicates optimism.
