Positive UK data only supported the move, as average wages increased to 2.7% from 2.6% forecasted reaching the highest level in 9 years. However, there was a fly in the ointment - claimant count number climbed to 18.5K from 10.0K expected hinting on possible decrease of demand for workers.
Investors are in positive mood ahead of tomorrow’s EU summit expecting some form of a deal will be done. European officials only heat up the expectations with hopeful comments, despite Irish border issue is still on the table.
