Great Britain will release the level of GDP growth and manufacturing production on August 9, at 11:30 MT time.
The level of GDP growth measures the economic activity of a country. Last time it advanced by 0.5%, which was in line with the forecast. Analysts expect the indicator to remain at the same level this time. As for manufacturing production, which represents the value of output produced by manufacturers, it increased by the lower-than-expected 1.4% (vs. the forecast of +2.2%). According to the forecasts, the indicator will decline by 0.1% during Friday's release.
• If the actual figures are higher than the forecasts, the GBP will strengthen;
• If the actual figures are lower than the forecasts, the GBP will weaken.
