Fundamental view

United Kingdom

The number of home loans in the United Kingdom, issued by the British Bankers’ Association (BBA), probably increased to 42 900 in August from 42 792 in July. The BBA features the major banks in the country, which account for almost 60% of overall mortgage lending. The number of mortgage loans is considered as a leading indicator in regard to UK housing market conditions. As growth in mortgage lending signifies a healthy housing sector, which also contributes to overall economic activity, in case the number of loans rose more than projected, this would boost demand for the sterling. The BBA is to publish the official figure at 8:30 GMT.


Retail sales in Canada probably increased 0.5% in July on a monthly basis, according to the median forecast by experts. If so, this would be the slowest rate of increase since March. In June sales rose 1.0%. Retail sales, excluding sales of automobiles, probably remained flat in July, following a 1.5% gain in the preceding month. Large-ticket purchases are excluded due to their high volatility, which could influence the general trend. In case retail sales increased more than anticipated, this would support the Canadian dollar. Statistics Canada is to release the official figure at 12:30 GMT.
