    1.jpg

    UK consumer sentiment strengthened more-than-expected in July to reach ahead of its March 2020 pre-lockdown level, survey data from the market research group GfK showed on Friday.

    The consumer sentiment index rose to -7 in July from -9 in the previous month. The expected reading was -8.

    "This means it has now held firm or improved for six months in a row," Joe Staton, client strategy director GfK, said. "What happens across the remaining summer months will frame consumer confidence for the rest of 2021 and beyond," Staton added.

    Among components of the consumer sentiment index, two measures were up in comparison to June, two measures were down and one stayed the same in July.

    The assessment of the past personal financial situation fell to -1 from zero in June, while the outlook for the personal financial situation held steady at 11.

    Consumers' view about the past general economic situation climbed to -43 from -47, while expectations for the general economic conditions worsened to -5 from -2.

    At the same time, the major purchase index rose to +2 from -5 a month ago.

    AUSTRALIA EXPORT PRICES SPIKE 13.2% ON QUARTER IN Q2

    2.jpg

    Export prices in Australia were up 13.2 percent on quarter in the second quarter of 2021, the Australian Bureau of Statistics said on Thursday - accelerating from 11.2 percent in the previous three months.

    On a yearly basis, export prices surged 26.0 percent.

    The main contributors to the rise were: metalliferous ores and metal scrap (+18.5 percent), driven by the demand for iron ore from China and constrained global supply; coal, coke and briquettes (+15.6 percent), reflecting the demand for thermal coal for household power production in Asia; and gas, natural and manufactured (+14.6 percent), due to the oil-linked contracts capturing the continued rise in oil prices in early 2021.

    Import prices rose 1.9 percent on quarter and fell 2.5 percent on year.
