Retail sales up 0.3 in November

28 July, 2011


This morning’s retail sales figures showed a 0.3% increase in November, broadly in line with expectations. October’s figure was revised up to 0.3% from 0.1%, which improved the year-on-year figure further.

The Pound gained a little strength on the release of the figures, although nothing like enough to counter the losses we have seen this week.

UK consumer confidence is released overnight but there is no other major data due out.
