Today, the Federal Reserve released their monthly read of industrial production and capacity utilization showing an improvement in September with total industrial production increasing 0.41% since August and rising 2.81% above the level seen in September 2011. 

Capacity utilization also increased rising 0.27% from August and climbing 1.37% above the level seen in September of 2011 to stand at 78.26%
