UK Industrial Production Beats Expectations for No Change

UK Industrial Production Beats Expectations for No Change

Benjamin Spier, Technical Strategist

THE TAKEAWAY: UK industrial production rises 0.1% in April, better than expected -> PMI for manufacturing recently reached a 14-month high -> Pound trading unchanged

UK industrial production increased at the slowest rate in three months in April, according to the UK Office for National Statistics. Production rose 0.1% over the month, beating expectations for no change and less than the 0.7% industrial production increase seen in March. Industrial production declined 0.6% from April 2012, and manufacturing declined 0.2% on a monthly basis.

The most recent manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index for May was reported at a 14-month high of 51.3 in May, as all three PMI’s for the month indicated expanded activity. The UK economy avoided a triple dip recession in the first quarter of this year, when the economy expanded 0.3%. Signs of improved economic growth for the second quarter are Pound positive.

However, the Pound did not react significantly in Forex markets to the better than expected industrial production. GBP/USD is trading slightly above 1.5550 at the time of this writing, and resistance might continue to be provided around 1.5595, by the 50% retracement of the decline from the January high to the March low.
