The economic sentiment turned negative in the Eurozone in 2018 as the trade war was escalating and the global economy weakening and it has been like that since then, bottoming at -43 points in August last year. Since August, the sentiment has improved and in December it turned positive, coming at 11.2 points, beating expectations. German ZEW sentiment has also turned positive, so the trend points to optimism. But, the outbreak of coronavirus in China will likely hurt the sentiment again, as the Eurozone Sentix investor confidence showed last week.
