GBP Public Sector Net Borrowing
From the Fundamental viewpoint, a look at the latest data from The Net Borrowing, which dropped from £ 8.25 B to £ 4.87 B, also exceeded the economist’s estimate of £ 5.6. When net borrowing rises, the UK reserves are surplus, which should be positive for GBP. It, therefore, pointed to the likelihood of strengthening the GBP currency in the near future.
