In the UK, current account deficit narrowed to GBP -2 bln in Q2 from GBP -4.1 bln in Q1 which is the best print since Q1 2008. BOE Governor King said today that inflation is peaking and that QE was executed because there was a risk that the inflation would fall below BOE target level. GBP has been relatively strong over the past few sessions pushing GBPUSD to over 1.6 today.
Italian political situation became more complex as one of PM Berlusconi's ministers warned that the government could fall over economic reforms demanded by the EU. PM Berlusconi is supposed to present a growth and debt reduction plan on Wednesday but yesterday's Italian government meeting failed to produce any agreements. Falling government in the fourth largest European economy would surely reverse the current risk on environment.
