Japan's industrial production grew 1% during January - its second-straight monthly increase - but missed forecasts for a 1.5% rise. Transport equipment, including cars, was the top contributor. Despite the less-than-expected reading, the average forecast of manufacturers surveyed showed industrial output was projected to surge 5.3% for February, up from a forecast 2.3% gain in the January survey. The yen's response was muted, with the dollar slipping from 92.34 to 92.31.
