BERLIN (Reuters) – German industrial output unexpectedly fell in November for the third consecutive month, data showed on Tuesday, in a further sign that Europe’s largest economy shifted into a lower gear in the final quarter of 2018.

Data from the Federal Statistics Office showed industrial output was down by 1.9 percent, confounding a Reuters forecast for an increase of 0.3 percent.

The figure for October was revised down to a fall of 0.8 percent from a previously reported drop of 0.5 percent.
