German industrial output tacks on, indicating a healthy 2018

In November, industrial output and exports from Germany rallied more than anticipated, helping the authorities to lift its estimate of surge for the previous year and also indicating that its expansion would carry on in 2018.

Industrial output inched up 3.4% for the month, which is the biggest soar since September 2009, as the Federal Statistics Office informed on Tuesday, surpassing a 1.8% estimate in a Reuters survey.

November’s seasonally adjusted exports added 4.1% on the month, while domestic demand enabled imports to gain 2.3%. Both figures exceeded Reuters estimates, also extended the trade surplus to about 22.3 billion euros from October’s 19.9 billion euros.

The figures and also buoyant business sentiments drops a hint that the German economy concluded 2017 with a bang, following the third quarter's huge 0.8% expansion, as some financial experts pointed out.

Right after the data, the German authorities raised its 2017 surge estimate to 2.2% from a previous forecast of 2%.
