Sterling started yesterday in positive fashion making solid gains against the majority of its major trading partners following the news that the construction sector grew at the fastest rate in 6 years. The figures released showed that the construction Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) came in at 59.4 when only a reading of 58.9 had been anticipated. More positivity came as the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) raised their growth forecast for the UK suggesting the UK will grow at 1.4% this year and 2.4% in 2014 (up from 1.2% and 2.3% respectively). Today the services sector – which makes up more than 70% of the UK’s output – will release its PMI figures with current marker estimates suggesting we will see a market expansion figure of 60.4.
