UK Orders Bounce Higher in Survey Unexpectedly
by Robert Brusca November 20, 2007

UK orders jumped to a net balance reading of +8 from -6 in October. The series has been somewhat see-saw as the chart on the left shows. Export orders, also showing some see-saw movement, are nonetheless rather better behaved and showing a clearer trend move lower. Output volume has been moving to lower readings but that net balance response continues to be at a firm, positive, +9. The price reading shows an unwelcome +21, its strongest reading in a while.
