Investors should not get too optimistic over the formation of the next German government, according to analysts, who believe the policies of the country’s lawmakers still remain very vague and there is still a chance that fresh elections will be needed.The Social Democratic Party (SPD) narrowly approved the start of formal coalition talks with Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats on Sunday.
