Brazil's economic activity remained poor in 3Q

Brazil's economic activity remained poor in 3Q, with the industrial sector still a drag. Industrial activity in Sao Paulo, the country's largest and most-industrialized state , dropped 2.3% sequentially in 3Q, says state industrial federation FIESP. "The year will end worse for the industry than in 2015. Maybe the GDP does not fall as much as last year, but industry performance will be worse in 2016."
