German business confidence dips slightly in August: Ifo
[FRANKFURT] German business confidence saw a slight dip in August from last month's record high, a survey from the Munich-based Ifo institute said Friday, but still beat analyst expectations.
The closely-watched survey, seen as an indicator of future performance in Europe's powerhouse, fell to 115.9 points after reaching an all-time peak in July.
Analysts surveyed by Factset had expected a steeper decline in morale at 115.7 points.
