Economic growth has been softening in the UK, especially in Q2 of last year. This GDP report will be for December. We saw the GDP fall flat in August and September, but it ticked a point higher in October and in November, the economy expanded by 0.2%. Although, the economic data for December from the UK has been pretty weak as well as the uncertainty surrounding the Brexit process increases, so there is a big chance that economic growth decelerates once again. An extension of Article 50 will push this sort of sentiment further down the road for another year or a few months at least, which is not what businesses and investors like. Please follow us for live coverage in real time of the event by experienced analysts.
