The currency pair GBP/USD slid 0.36% trading at 1.2918.

Consumer prices rallied 2.6% versus 2016, as the Office for National Statistics informed. It’s moderately below economists' hopes for a 2.7% annual ascend.

Excluding crude prices as well as other volatile components, including food, core consumer price inflation inched up by 2.4% from 2016, versus economists' hopes for 2.5%.

In July, the level utilized by the government to set rail fare hikes, the retail price index grew by an annualized 3.6% versus 3.5% in the previous month.
