The new data could point to persistent worries surrounding the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union and slowing growth in general. “The mood among German managers became slightly gloomier this month,” Ifo President Clemens Fuest said in a press release Wednesday. “March’s gentle optimism regarding the coming months has evaporated.
