Turkey’s sectoral confidence indices announced for Sept
The confidence index for the service sector declined 2.3% to a seasonally adjusted reading of 99.99 in September because of a decreased number of managers expecting stronger demand-turnover data over the next three months.
The retail trade confidence index also posted a drop of 4.6% on the month to a reading of 99.27 in September because of a decreased number of managers evaluating their current volume of stock as below normal considering the season and anticipations of an increase in the reading of a business activity- sales measurement for the next three months.
Meanwhile, the construction sector confidence index dropped 2.1% to a reading of 80.37 in September due to a decreased number of managers judging their current overall order books as above the seasonal average and expecting a decrease in total employment over the next three months.
Any reading above 100 indicates an optimistic outlook while readings below 100 indicate a pessimistic outlook.
