Swiss KOF dropped to 86.5 in Aug, economic outlook appears less than encouraging

Swiss KOF Economic Barometer dropped from 90.5 to 86.5 in August, below expectation of 88.6. KOF said the reading is “quite considerably below its long-term average”. Accordingly, “for the near future the outlook for the Swiss economy appears less than encouraging.”

KOF added: ” The decline is primarily due to indicators broadly associated with private consumption, but the manufacturing sector and the construction industry are emitting negative signals, too. The other indicators included in the barometer show hardly any changes.”
