UK Data Leave GBP Price Little Changed as Brexit Dominates | Webinar

UK Data Leave GBP Price Little Changed as Brexit Dominates | Webinar

Martin Essex, MSTA,
What's on this page

GBPUSD price, news and analysis:

  • Mixed UK data for August have failed to move the British Pound or London stocks very far.
  • For traders in UK assets, Brexit continues to dominate trading and will likely determine their future direction.

Check out the IG Client Sentiment data to help you trade profitably.

UK economy little changed in August

The UK economy remained stable in August, according to the latest economic data.

Trade and construction figures were broadly worse than expected while industrial production numbers were broadly better than predicted. The GDP statistics for the month were mixed.

Overall, that sent GBPUSD modestly lower.

Looking ahead, the Brexit negotiations between the UK and the EU will likely determine the future direction of GBP and London stocks, as I explained in this webinar before and after the data.
