BERLIN (Reuters) - Investor morale in the euro zone fell further in September driven by another sharp drop in expectations due to concerns that new COVID-19 restrictions could slow down business activity, a survey showed on Monday.

Sentix's index for the euro zone decreased to 19.6 points from 22.2 points in August. This was the lowest reading since April and missed a Reuters poll of 19.7.

An expectations sub-index suffered its fourth decline in a row and fell to its lowest level since May 2020. A current conditions index remained unchanged.

Sentix surveyed 1,070 investors from Sept 2 to 4.
