Key Quotes

“Leading indicators are mixed, with upside coming from the recent strength in the services PMI, steady gains in house prices, and higher than average temperatures, while on the downside we’ve seen poor sales results from John Lewis and the strength in inflation should weigh on retail volumes. On balance though we look for sales to post their first back-to-back gain since July-Aug last year.”
