After August, the GKI economic sentiment index decreased also in September, within the statistical margin of error. This is due to some deterioration in consumer expectations, as business expectations stagnated. After a shock-like fall in the outlook for domestic econom-ic participants in April, there was a significant positive correction in May and June and a more modest one in July. Thus, the GKI economic sentiment index eliminated more than half of its April fall. By September, the extent of this elimination decreased to only half of the April fall.
