Positive Britain's economic reports for June resulted in a solid jump in the GBP/USD exchange rate right after the data came in. Following the release, the Sterling rose versus the US Dollar by 16 base points to touch the 1.2981 level. The Office for National Statistics reported that the country's manufacturing output grew at the same pace as previously, while industrial production advanced unexpectedly over the month of June. The survey's results suggested that the manufacturing growth is likely to gain momentum in the third quarter, while exports would grow at a faster-than-estimated pace. Moreover, experts revealed that the economic expansion is likely to hold up sufficient growth pace in the second half of 2017 rather than decelerate.
