Frankfurt - AFP

Consumer confidence in Germany appears to stabilising or recovering slightly amid burgeoning optimism that Europe\'s biggest economy has put the worst of the debt crisis behind it, a poll found Tuesday. Market research company GfK said its household confidence index was forecast to inch upwards to 5.8 points in February from 5.7 points in January, a statement said. The January figure was revised upwards from an original reading of 5.6 points. GfK said that both consumers\' income expectations and their willingness to spend picked up sharply and their economic expectations were also on the rise. \"The current calm on the financial markets is making Germans more confident at the start of this year,\" the statement said. \"Despite a difficult fourth quarter, consumers expect the economy to pick up again during the course of the year.\" The headline consumer confidence reading is based on responses from about 2,000 households on their expectations about pay and the economy as a whole in the coming months, as well as their willingness to spend money. Other recent confidence indicators -- such as the ZEW investor confidence index and the Ifo business climate index -- have risen sharply recently on hopes that Europe\'s top economy will bounce back from a dip in growth at the end of last year and boost prospects for the eurozone as a whole.
