6 Japanese GDP rose for a 4th straight quarter, rising 0.5% from July-Sept., down from 0.9% the prior quarter, but not as weak as analysts expected. Capital spending, however, was sluggish. The eurozone expanded for a 2nd quarter, but at a less-than-expected 0.1% rate. Germany had a 0.3% gain, but Italy and France contracted. The European Central Bank last week cut rates amid sluggish activity.
