Current trend

Important data on the UK economy is expected during the week.
Tomorrow data on the Current Account is due. According to forecasts, in November the budget deficit increased by about 4.7 billion Pounds. On Wednesday, data on the third quarter GDP is out. The figure is expected to remain at 0.5%, unchanged from the previous quarter. At the same time, latest data on consumer inflation showed a near-zero growth, while producer price indices significantly fell.
Therefore, absence of inflation growth and poor macroeconomic statistics shift the expectations of monetary policy tightening in the UK to the second half of 2016 that will continue pressuring the pair.
