The GBP/USD currency pair showed modest reaction on the UK economic releases on Friday, as the reports revealed mixed results for July. However, a small impact from British macroeconomic data as well as the weakening US Dollar were not interfering the Sterling to extend gains by the mid-Friday session, where after post-data drop of 0.04% the British Pound rose to the highest level in five weeks to start trading in the 1.318-1.321 area.
The Office for National Statistics stated that the UK manufacturing output increased 0.5% over the month of July, showing the strongest gain this year. Coming along with weaker construction output, data suggested the UK economy to expand at a modest pace in the Q3.
