German industrial production fell 3% in December 2016 on a month over month basis following November's 0.5% revised increase from the previously estimated 0.4%. Production in industry which excludes energy and construction fell 3.4% and production of capital goods fell by 5.4%, driving the declines in December.

The industrial production data disappointed as economists were expecting to see a 0.2% increase on a month over month basis. The euro has turned weaker after yesterday, ECB President Mario Draghi testified to the EU parliament in Brussels where he stressed that the ECB was ready to expand QE if required.

Although the British pound is also hit with uncertainty, the gains are likely to outperform that of the euro. The EURGBP bias remains to the downside. Therefore, purchase daily PUT options at 0.8600 for a 21:00 GMT expiry as the recent bounce to the upside is showing signs of exhaustion currently.
