KOF ECONOMIC BAROMETER: ECONOMIC PROSPECTS HAVE DETERIORATED

The KOF Economic Barometer fell in July 2014. After it had stabilized in the previous month, it now continues the downward tendency that started in February this year. The KOF Economic Barometer has fallen by 2.4 points – from 100.5 in June (revised from 100.4) to 98.1. Thus, the Barometer is below its long-term average value, which equals 100. The Swiss economy is losing some of its momentum.
