TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

In a research note sent to clients, economists at Bank of America-Merrill Lynch said they were now assuming that Brexit would remain unresolved by end-2020 and that the brinkmanship between Beijing and Washington would last at least until the end of June.

Because of the former, they no longer foresaw a so called “Brexit deal dividend” – or acceleration in growth into mid-2020 – although an “eventual” resolution of the US-China talks would allow a degree of recovery in economic growth during the following year.

UK GDP growth in 2020 was now seen half a percentage point lower, at 1.1%, but BofA-ML bumped-up its projection for 2019 from 1.1% to 1.4% on the back of the stronger-than-expected pace of expansion seen over the first three months of the year.
