At the end of the week, the German stock market continued its recovery from the previous day. Encouraging inflation data temporarily provided a significant boost, but by Friday evening much of the tailwind had ebbed again. The leading index Dax closed with a gain of 0.41 percent at 15,386.58 points, well below its daily high. On a weekly basis, the stock market barometer is in the red by around one percent.

The MDax of medium-sized stocks jumped back above the 26,000 point mark on Friday, and at the closing bell there was an increase of 1.39 percent to 26,075.11 points.
