Business Climate Indicator decreased slightly in April

In April 2014 the Business Climate Indicator (BCI) for the euro area decreased slightly by 0.13 points to +0.27. Managers' evaluation of the past and expected production, as well as of the current level of export order books worsened, while their assessment of overall order books improved and their appraisal of the stocks of finished products remained broadly unchanged.

The BCI is based on a factor analysis of the euro area aggregate balances (seasonally adjusted) of five of the monthly questions in the industry survey (only employment and selling-price expectations are excluded).

The next BCI results are due to be published on 29 April 2014.
