Key Quotes

“Growth had surged in August on account of a recovery in auto production as holidays were (atypically) taken in July this year, so this data marks a return to more normal readings.”

“The UK trade data revealed a marked improvement in the trade balance, which fell from -£2.9B in August to just -£1.3B in September. The visible trade balance also improved considerably, moving from -£10.8B to -£9.4B. Strong goods exports (+2.4% m/m) and weak goods imports (-2.5% m/m) in September helped drive this improvement.”
