Sterling reaches day’s maximums on British factory data

On Wednesday, the British pound rallied to the day’s maximums after data disclosing that the British manufacturing sector edged up at a faster than anticipated tempo in October, thus driving the outlook for fourth quarter ascend.

The currency pair GBP/USD reached a maximum of 1.3319, which the most impressive outcome since October 13.

AS research group IHS Markit informed, its British manufacturing purchasing managers’ index headed north to 56.3 in October versus September’s upwardly updated outcome of 56.0.

The surge was powered by an ascend in fresh orders, hinting that the weaker pound is good for British manufacturers. However, the dip in the British pound also suggests that price pressures were still elevated.

The report emerged as traders waited for the outcome of the Bank of England’s gathering on Thursday amid hopes for the first interest rate lift in nearly a decade.

The euro went down to four-and-a-half month minimums versus the British pound. EUR/GBP slumped 0.22% hitting 0.8747.
