EURO ZONE INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION REBOUNDED in May advancing by 0.9 percent exceeding estimates a pleasant surprise to many investors. The production of consumer goods drove output higher notably in France increasing 2.1 percent month-over-month. Despite the expansion in all major economies production is down 0.5 percent from one year prior. “If you look at the industrial production figures for the Eurozone they were better than expected, which is obviously a welcome sign - and in the background you have the Fed as well and we now expect a cut in July.” FTSE 100 -0.13%, German DAX -0.03%, CAC 40 +0.29%, STOXX Europe 600 -0.01%. The 10-year Gilt dipped 0.2 basis points.
