Sterling drops against the Australian Dollar (Dayle Littlejohn)

AUDGBP Bounce Fails to Top the 0.5500 Level

This morning the Pound has dropped over a cent against the Australian dollar due to poor UK public net borrowing numbers. Net Borrowing numbers are released by the National Statistics and the figure shows the amount of new debt held by the UK.

The previous figure was £6.748B and the consensus was a rise to £11B. However the deficit increased further than first thought and rose to £13.55B. The next data release which will impact GBPAUD exchange rates is UK GDP figures tomorrow morning.

There is an argument to suggest retail sales numbers in December were positive which could lead to positive GDP figures.  However on the other hand UK manufacturing and Industrial figures have slowed which could have a negative impact on GDP.

Trading on the back of this data release in my opinion as a complete gamble!
