The German IFO institute released better than expected sentiment figures. Business Climate in Germany rose to 111.3 points. It was expected to remain stable in February, staying around 110.7 points seen in January. The expectations component was predicted to slide from 108.9 to 108.2 points and it came out at 108.3 points.. The “current assessment” figure was predicted to tick up from 112.4 to 112.8 points and here we already have a bigger surprise with a rise to 114.4 points.
