Key data releases over the past month helped provide insight on the UK economy post-Brexit.

Data roundup

  • GDP growth exceeded market expectations, coming in at 0.5% in the three months to September.
  • Manufacturing output contracted in the third quarter, reflecting some unwinding of the exceptional growth spike seen in the second quarter.
  • Cost pressures continued to intensify over the past month as a result of the Sterling depreciation. The pass-through into higher consumer prices is yet to come.
  • Manufacturing activity stabilised at the start of the last quarter of the year. In particular, export orders remain at multi-months high, helped by the Sterling depreciation and an improvement in global manufacturing activity levels.
