Analysis and Recommendations:

The GBP/USD is trading at 1.6037 adding 23pips. Today’s CBI Trades Survey printed well above expectations and above previous months, helping to support the Great British Pound. Weaker consumer lending and house price data weigh on the currency. The softer lending data present a challenge to BoE policymakers, as they had sought to move away from QE and foster growth via the Funding for Lending Scheme announced in July. However, a weakened growth outlook appears to have resuscitated policymakers’ support for asset purchases, which were recognized as having helped mitigate economic headwinds in testimony earlier this week.
