The UK Retail Sales m/m data (Actual: -0.2%, Forecast: 0.6%, Previous: -0.6% revised from -0.9%) released last Friday indicated continued decline in consumer spending in September.

Also, the UK flash PMI data released indicated a faster pace of expansion in business activities in October due to the rolling back of COVID restrictions.
