ECONOMIC INDICATORS

CHINA

Car sales in China, the world's biggest vehicle market, have seen their first annual fall in twenty years.

GERMANY

German industrial output unexpectedly fell in November for the third consecutive month, data showed on Tuesday, adding to signs that Europe's largest economy shifted into a lower gear in the final quarter of 2018.

FRANCE

Private sector business activity contracted for the first time in two and a half years

UK

Growth in the UK's economy slowed in the three months to November, expanding at its weakest pace in six months. The economy grew by 0.3% during the period, less than the 0.4% in the three months to October, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) said.

British new car sales in 2018 fell at their fastest rate since 2008.

UK retailers suffer worst Christmas since 2008.

JAPAN

A gradual rise by the Japanese yen in recent weeks culminated in a dramatic overnight surge -- firing a warning shot for world markets and the global economy in 2019.

Historically, outsized yen gains in short periods, such as the Russian default in 1998 and the global market meltdown in 2008, are a harbinger of stress for global markets. Market watchers say the yen's latest ascent is a sign that the global economy is set for a rocky ride ahead.
