Forex Flash: UK GDP to “triple-dip” or not to “triple-dip” – TD Securities

And with the weak start to the year, we don’t expect significant quarterly growth from any other major sectors as by our tracking they so far suggest only a marginal contribution”, wrote analyst Annette Beacher, expecting a -0.1 to -0.2% contraction despite consensus of +0.1% Q/Q, “which means the media will be focused squarely on dreaming up the most sensationalistic ‘triple-dip’ headlines”.
