Italy has the third largest economy in the Eurozone behind Germany and France. It also has a very significant public debt burden and has seen many years of torpid economic growth.
Data just released shows that French industrial output increased by an unexpected 1.1% in the month of November. What does this mean for your Forex trading?
The end of the first trading week of 2012 saw data being published that highlighted the stark contrast between the economies of the Eurozone and the US and offered a good indication for many as to why, at this point in time, the USD looks a much wiser investment than the EUR.
Friday marked the first trading session of the New Year and was a mixed affair for the world’s major markets. With respect to the Euro crisis, it was business as usual.

During the Thursday session, the EUR/USD pair finally broke down below the 1.29 level as the fears over European debt issues continued.
Tis the season of low trading volumes which may account for the fact that the Euro has slipped to a ten-year low against the Yen and is at a one-year low against the US Dollar.
While it certainly can be said that the Europeans are not the only ones guilty of a little “creative accounting” or even a game of financial “Three card Monty”, the situation in Italy and some of the other countries in the European Union is rapidly becoming somewhat of a game in the recent months.
The Case-Shiller Index charts the value of US property stock in a ten and a 20 city sample. It is designed to give a national snapshot of what prices are doing in this key sector of the US economy.
