This morning the UK released Construction PMI Data. PMI is a survey of purchasing managers asking respondents to rate conditions within their sector, things such as employment, production, new orders to name a few. A figure above 50 indicates industry expansion and under 50 contraction. This morning’s figure was expected to show expansion with a figure of 56.1. The actual figure was even better released at 57.8. GBP was boosted by this news and as a result has appreciated by over half a percent against the EUR.
