In the Economic News this week;  European industrial production improved in February, with capital goods running at about the same level as the sector as a whole.  The Us machine tool market is down this year, but that seems to be mainly due to some investment incentives expiring at the end of 2014 which brought forward some business in to the end of 2014;  cutting tool demand is up a little which supports the view that the underlying position is good.
That’s all for this we’ll be back next Friday with more industry news.
