    • German industrial production unexpectedly fell for a second month in December, in a sign that Europe's largest economy ended 2015 on weaker footing.
    • Output, adjusted for seasonal swings and inflation, fell 1.2% from November, when it declined by a revised 0.1%.
    • The pullback comes at a time when record-low unemployment and low fuel costs bolster consumer spending, but a slowdown in major export markets counteract these positive trends to rein in production.
