The current situation index of the survey rose to 16.3 from 13.3, improving for the first time in four months. Meanwhile, the expectations measure fell to 13.5 from 13.8 in the previous month. That was the first decline in three months.

The latest poll was conducted from January 6 to 8 among 1,163 investors, of whom 254 were institutions.

The current situation index climbed to 20.0 and the expectations measure rose for a third straight month to 23.5, its highest level since July 2021. "The figures for the Asia ex Japan region are particularly encouraging...This gives more contour to our basic scenario that the global economy will recover and emerge from the mid-cycle slowdown," Sentix said.
