House prices fall, but trade balance improves

28 July, 2011


Mixed news this morning, as UK house prices have fallen slightly over the last 2 months according to the main 3 UK housing market surveys, casting further doubt on the UK’s economic recovery. On the other hand, Britain’s trade balance figures out this morning showed something of an improvement.

The Pound has fallen slightly but is continuing to trade in tight ranges, ahead of tomorrow’s Bank of England quarterly inflation report.
