UK Industrial Sector Shows no Sign of Weakness, but Hints at Inflation
by Robert Brusca January 22, 2008

UK orders are holding in positive territory, but not by much. Order volumes expected in 3-Mos snapped back in January. Prices are staying very strong in the range in the top seven percent since end 2000. Export orders did tick back down in January to -4 juts below their 12-month average at -3. On balance the UK industrial sector looks fairly firm and somewhat inflation prone.
