Activity Inching Back in European Economies, Steady in the U.S.

Economic activity picked up or held steady in major economies in the first half of February, after a mid-January drop that was driven by high infection rates and stricter containment measures. That’s according to Bloomberg Economics gauges that integrate data such as mobility, energy consumption and public transport usage. Activity rose in Germany, Italy and Spain, and remained stable in the U.S., U.K., France and Canada.
