Market research group Sentix released its investor confidence index for the Eurozone on Monday. The index slid to 9.6 in January from 15.7 in December.
A reading above 0.0 indicates optimism, below indicates pessimism.
"The shakeup at Chinese stock exchanges is perceived more than a "technical issue" by investors. Economic ex-pectations for Asia ex. Japan show the strongest nosedive ever recorded. Yet, economic expectations for the US economy are negative, the first time since October 2012," Sentix said in its statement.
The current conditions index fell to 13.0 in January from 13.5 in December.
The expectations index plunged to 6.3 in January from 18.0 in December.
German investor confidence index dropped to 18.1 in January from 22.7 in December.
