At the end of last week, The United Kingdom published some macroeconomic reports, according to which the Services PMI went from 50.0 points in October to 48.6 points this month.

The Manufacturing PMI decreased down to 48.3 points in November after being 49.6 points the month before. This is bad news: it means that the Brexit extension until January 31st, 2020 inspired neither manufacturers nor consumers and they had to become less active.

This, in its turn, indicates that in November the British GDP may lose that little support it still had. The fourth-quarter GDP will also suffer.

The Pound might have fallen much deeper if it wasn’t for optimism of the British Prime minister Boris Johnson. He plans to complete the UK’s exiting from the European Union and said he was ready to introduce relevant documents by December 25th, if his party wins the early elections of course.

In addition to that, Johnson is willing to postpone tax hikes and increase expenses on the health care sector. The electoral base should like, but there is no 100% guarantee that this move is going to work.
