German consumer morale is projected to improve slightly in February as households hope for an improvement in price trends and a possible easing of the pandemic situation in the spring, a survey showed on Thursday.

The GfK institute said its consumer sentiment index, based on a survey of around 2,000 Germans, edged up to -6.7 points heading into February from a revised -6.9 points a month earlier, the first increase after two consecutive months of decline.

Analysts polled by Reuters had on average expected the index to drop to -7.8.
