Industrial production data

US September industrial production
  • Prior was +0.4%
  • Manufacturing production -0.3% vs +0.7% expected
  • Prior production +1.0% (revised to +1.2%)
  • Capacity utilization -0.3% vs +0.6% expected
In contrast to retail sales, this is a big miss. What's puzzling is that the Philly Fed this week was very strong so there's a disconnect. I don't think there's much reason to worry here, despite the headline, but it's an interesting turn of events.
