Mc Carney still drive the sterling higher as UK solid data prevail.

The second estimate of German Q2 GDP growth shows that the economy can perform well without strong exports. Domestic demand was the main driver of the growth comeback. What’s more, yesterday’s “flash” PMI figures provide further confirmation that the Euro zone economy has left recession behind. But the return to growth remains fragile and uneven. Besides that, this morning’s UK GDP revision should confirm that the economy is in mini-recovery mode and that should be cheered at every level. But it will continue to give the MPC and Mr Carney a headache in their desire to lock in low rates and provide insurance for the recovery.
