Pt. Solid Gold Berjangka ~ Indeks manufaktur U.K. meningkatkan lajunya pada bulan Juni dan tumbuh di laju tercepat dalam lima bulan sebelum referendum Uni Eropa.

PMI ‘naik ke 52,1 dari 50,4 direvisi naik pada bulan Mei, Markit Economics mengatakan hari Jumat di London. Hampir semua tanggapan survei diterima sebelum akhir 23 Juni, hari pemungutan suara keanggotaan Uni Eropa. Para ekonom telah memperkirakan Indekse tetap tidak berubah pada 50,1.

Penurunan pound sejak pemungutan suara U.K. untuk meninggalkan mungkin membuat lebih mudah bagi produsen untuk ekspor, karena mereka telah diguncang selama bertahun-tahun oleh kekuatan mata uang. Di sisi lain, perdagangan dengan Uni Eropa, yang merupakan mitra dagang terbesar Inggris, mungkin kurang menguntungkan dalam jangka yang panjang.(solid gold)

U.K. manufacturing picked up speed in June and was growing at its fastest pace in five months before the country�s European Union referendum.

A Purchasing Managers� Index rose to 52.1 from an upwardly revised 50.4 in May, Markit Economics said Friday in London. Almost all survey responses were received before the end of June 23, the day of the EU membership vote. Economists had forecast the gauge to remain unchanged at 50.1.

U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron resigned in the wake of the vote and the Conservative Party has yet to elect his replacement, meaning the U.K.â��s exit strategy from the bloc — and its full economic consequences — may not be known for months to come. Nearly three quarters of economists surveyed by Bloomberg expect the U.K. to enter recession.

The pound�s decline since the U.K.�s vote to leave might make it easier for manufacturers to export, as they have been crippled for years by the strength of the currency. On the other hand, trading terms with the EU, Britain�s largest trading partner, may be less favorable in the long term.
