Germany - Stock Market

Short-term political risk increased somewhat in the wake of the Bavarian state election, which saw the Bavarian Christian Social Union (CSU) lose its absolute majority in the regional parliament and the Social Democrats (SPD) garner only single-digit support for the first time in its history. Although the result might lead the CSU to adopt a less belligerent stance towards Angela Merkel, the SPD’s poor showing could swell opposition within the party towards the alliance with Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU). The election took place against the backdrop of an economy which appeared to perform steadily in the third quarter. The composite PMI averaged higher in Q3 compared to Q2, chiefly due to the services sector. Moreover, business confidence improved in the quarter, while the unemployment rate fell to a new post-reunification low in September. On the other hand, external data disappointed in July–August, with exports falling in month-on-month terms, while retail sales contracted in the same period despite rising wages and still-elevated consumer confidence. Attention will now turn to elections in Hesse on 28 October.
