Denmark's consumer price inflation rose marginally in December, while industrial production fell sharply in November led by a slump in the pharmaceutical industry, data from Statistics Denmark showed on Tuesday.

Separate data from the statistical office showed that the industrial production declined 5.2 percent month-on-month in November, following a 0.5 percent fall in October. In September, production rose 2.0 percent.

The latest decline was due to a 21 percent slump in output in the pharmaceutical industry.

Industrial turnover increased 0.3 percent monthly in November and rose 2.5 percent in the November quarter.

Trading in leveraged currency contracts comes with substantial risk. You must be aware of these risks before opening an account to trade. High leverage amplifies gains as well as losses, leading to potential loss of the entire account balance. Trading in leveraged currency contracts may not be suitable for every investor. Never speculate using money that you cannot afford to lose.
