German Industrial Production rises 2.1% MoM in February vs. 0.3% expected

Germany’s industrial sector extended its pace of expansion in February, the latest data published by Destatis showed on Monday.

Industrial output in the Eurozone’s top economy rose 2.1% MoM, the federal statistics authority Destatis said in figures adjusted for seasonal and calendar effects, as against the 0.3% expected and a 1.3% increase in January.

German Industrial Production plunged at an annual rate of 4.9% in February versus the January slump of 5.3%.

EUR/USD reaction to the German Industrial Production data

The upbeat German industrial figures failed to have any impact on the Euro, as EUR/USD trades flat on the day at 1.0834 at the press time.
