Marginal deterioration in consumer confidence in NovemberTuesday, 26 Nov 2013
Consumer confidence shows a marginal decline relative to October. The slight deterioration seen this month is due to a sharp downturn in citizens’ optimism about the future of the Greek economy. Generally speaking, the movement of the relevant index since the beginning of the current year leads to the conclusion that the recovery observed in January 2013 lacks sufficient momentum to further improve consumer sentiment.

Consumer confidence recovers in SeptemberThursday, 26 Sep 2013
Consumer confidence showed an improvement relative to July. The rise observed in the current month may to some extent be due to seasonal variation of the respective index. In any event, the recovery seen since the beginning of the year appears to have taken hold, despite the sharp fluctuations caused by major political and economic shocks (developments in Cyprus, closure of state broadcaster ERT, withdrawal of Democratic Left from the three-party coalition government, etc.). But consumer confidence still remains at extremely low levels and citizens’ expectations for the future continue to be negative.

Consumer confidence falls markedly in JulyThursday, 25 Jul 2013
Consumer confidence deteriorated significantly in July relative to the previous month. The decline recorded in the current month is most probably due to recent political developments (closure of state broadcaster ERT, breakup of the ruling three-party coalition, government reshuffle), confirming the strong interaction between the consumer and the political climate. As things stand, it is not possible to forecast the course of consumer confidence, that is, whether the deterioration will prove to be conjunctural in nature or whether it marks the beginning of a reversal of the uptrend seen in recent months.
