“The recent revised GBP estimates in the United Kingdom suggest the economy grew by 0.7% in Q2 and even though better weather was a health factor, various indicators point to an underlying strengthening in activity.”

“We have nudged our GBP/USD forecasts up to +1.3% this year and +2.4% next. Following the BoE Governor Mark Carneys Inflation Report press conference, our central case is now that there will be no further QE.”
