Domestic demand declined by 0.2%, but the volume of trade increased by 0.2%. Private consumption grew by 0.7% and governmental by 0.6%. The main positive was the growth of exports by 1.9%.

In this regard, we have improved the outlook for the stock market in Germany, but note the negative impact of weak growth in the euro area. We estimate that in the near future growth will continue, but it is too early to talk about growth in the medium term.
