Industrial production in the Euro zone probably jumped 0.5% in April from the previous month, according to the median analyst’ estimate. In March, industrial output dropped 0.3%. On year-over-year basis, the index probably rose 0.9% in April, following an unexpected 0.1% decline in the previous month.
Industrial production is an indicator of the business cycle that shows the activity and development in the industry as a whole, by measuring the change in volume for a certain period of time. Information on industrial production is raised through special studies for EU members, which are called Prodcom. They cover between 5000 and 6000 products. The index measures the percentage change from the previous month.
A larger than expected increase in the industrial output would heighten the appeal of the euro. The official report is due out at 09:00 GMT.
Selling prices of new homes in Canada probably rose 0.3% in April compared to a month ago, following a 0.2% increase in March. The New Housing Price Index is a key indicator, reflecting the health of nation’s housing market. In case prices surged more than anticipated, this would have a bullish effect on the loonie.
Statistics Canada will release the official data at 12:30 GMT.
