UK economy fails to grow but sidesteps start of a recession
Britain’s stagnating economy failed to grow in the July-to-September period but at least managed to avoid the start of a recession, figures from the Office for National Statistics showed on Friday, according to a Reuters report.
The 0 percent change in gross domestic product in the third quarter was a touch better than a forecast for a 0.1 percent fall in a Reuters poll of economists, which many analysts said was likely to represent the start of a recession.
In the three months to September, output in Britain’s huge services sector fell by 0.1 percent, industrial production was broadly flat and construction grew by 0.1 percent, the statistics office said.
European markets down in the red:
Major European markets including FTSE, French CAC and German DAX were trading in the red, each down over half a percent each as hawkish comments from the US Federal Reserve Chair poured cold water on investor optimism around a peak in interest rates.
