TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

Thomas Pugh, UK economist at Capital Economics, said that consumers could just be holding off on purchases ahead of ‘Black Friday’ discounts in November, which were poorly captured in the ONS seasonal adjustment process.

“But at least some of last month’s weakness may reflect the recent weakness in the labour market with fewer people in employment and wage growth slowing, consumers may feel less flush.

“Overall, it is increasingly clear that the risks to our forecast for GDP growth of 0.2% quarter-on-quarter in the fourth quarter appear on the downside.”
