Global macro overview for 17/11/2017

The US Industrial Production jumped a solid 0.9% in October as factory activity recovered from the impact of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma (consensus: 0.5%). New light for the expected growth rate for the fourth quarter threw a massive jump in factory production (1.3% m/m, consensus: 0.6%) which was recorded at its seven-year high. Mining activity slipped 1.3% in October as Hurricane Nate caused a brief decline in oil and gas drilling. Production at utilities rose 2.0%.

Maintaining these trends will lead to an increase of the US economy by 3.5% annualized GDP growth. Over the past 12 months, manufacturers have added 156,000 jobs. That's the strongest annual growth since the middle of 2015.
