Data as published by Sentix - 8 January 2018

A much higher than expected reading, after the prior month dip. Not really a major data point, a general indicator of investor sentiment towards the Eurozone outlook over the next 6 months.

The number has been trending up since mid-2016, which adds to the reason why political leaders in the Eurozone have been upbeat on its outlook. EUR/USD now just under 1.1990, trading at 1.1987.
