German industrial production hit a speed bump

German industrial production dropped 0.3% in November, weaker than analysts were expecting.

Economists estimated a 0.5% rise, following on from Germany’s 0.5% increase in industrial production in October.

The poor November figure pushed year-on-year production down to 0.1% from 0.4% a month earlier.
