PMI manufacturing at its highest level......>

UK DATA: PMI manufacturing at its highest level for six months, but the details

- The Markit press release state that this is as a result of Brexit
"The rise in the PMI level during December was mainly driven by stronger inflows
of new business and a solid increase in stocks of purchases. Movements in both
mainly reflected Brexit preparations by manufacturers and their clients."

more an uptick in Brexit preparations.
- The press release also points out that "the degree of confidence was only
slightly above November's 27-month low."
