· Taking a look at some of the other components, the rise in business confidence was the result of a rise in past production from 12 in October to 16 in November, and a rise in order books from 0 to 3 for the same periods, as well as the rise in own-company production outlook. Despite the rise, unless the Euro weakens the index is likely to decline in the coming months as export strength is at stake.

· IT Nov Business Confidence: 92.2 v 92.0e || Prior revised form 92.9 to 92.8

· Italian business confidence declined to its lowest level since December of 2005, but still managed to beat out consensus expectations. Confidence was dragged down by the total orders component, which declined to -8 from -6 in October, and the domestic orders, and inventory of manufactured goods components, both of which declined by one point. Italian production outlook declined to 15 from 18 in October, and the selling prices outlook decline to 12 from 15 in October.

· Consumer prices in the German state of Saxony rose by 3.4% y/y to their highest level since December of 1994. The rise in CPI was led by a rise in energy costs, with the heading oil component rising from 3.8% y/y in October to 24.8% in November; The fuel component rose from 11.6% to 18.9%, and the household energy component rose from 4.9% to 8.3%. While other components posted gains as well, energy remains the main inflationary theme in November, bolstering the y/y reading to multi-year highs.

· GE North Rhine Westphalia CPI: M/M 0.5% v 0.1% prior || Y/Y 3.2% v 2.6% prior

· Following the Saxony CPI data, readings in Hesse and Brandenburg maintained the inflationary theme, with the y/y reading in Brandenburg also reaching its highest level since December 1994, while the y/y reading in Hesse reached its highest level on record since records began in 2000. As expected energy and food prices were largely responsible for the rise in German inflation. The states of Baden Wuerttemberg and NRW also kept the spirit alive posting multi-year y/y highs.

The Saudi Arabian Oil Minister said overnight that he does not know the timing of further OPEC output increases.

· Fixed income futures are trading lower in the session, weighed down by a strong rise in the y/y readings in German state CPI figures, as well as a stronger than expected reading the German IFO survey for the month of November. Over in the UK, minutes from the GEMMs' meeting with the DMO were released overnight. GEMMS called for a new 5-year gilt, as well as another tap on the 2018 gilt. Investors showed no demand for a new long bond, however most wanted the auction of the 2030 and 2042 issues. GEMMs also supports a the new short- dated issue.
