    Today we look at the UK and the pound. After a period where the focus of market attention has been dominated by the monetary policy debates in the US and Eurozone, recent data and projections bring the UK and GBP back to the fore. Our view on both remains very positive.

    Euro area industrial production dropped by 0.2% MoM in January vs, +0.5% expected. However, December was revised a bit higher to -0.4% from -0.7%. The annual change in production rose to 2.1% in January from 1.2% when you adjust for the number of workdays.

    Among the "big four" Germany saw production increase by 0.4% while France recorded a drop of 0.3%. Italy gained 1% while Spain posted a 0.2% increase.

    While the US can blame some rather poor weather for mediocre data of late, the weather has been much more benign in Europe, which is evident in the industrial production report. Energy dropped 2.5% in January MoM following a similar sized decline in December. Energy is down 4.6% YoY. Meanwhile capital goods climbed 0.9% MoM while durable goods dropped 0.6%.
