The UK reported the October trade deficit shrank less than expected to £9.732B from £10.099B (revised from £9.816B) while industrial and manufacturing production rose 0.4% each, versus 0.3% and 0.4% expected respectively. "All of which should prove positive for sterling", says Rob Carnell, analyst at ING Bank. "Our FX strategists think sterling is one of the few developed market currencies that will be able to keep pace with USD appreciation once the taper starts and the USD embarks on its forecast 2014 rally".
