UK House Price Growth At 5-Year Low: Nationwide



UK house prices increased at the slowest pace in five years in June on squeezed household budgets and Brexit uncertainty, data from the Nationwide Building Society showed Wednesday.

House prices grew 2 percent year-on-year in June, following May's 2.4 percent rise. This was the weakest growth since 2013. Nonetheless, the pace of increase was faster than the 1.7 percent economists had expected.

On a monthly basis, house prices rebounded 0.5 percent after falling 0.2 percent in May. Economists had forecast a 0.2 percent rise for June. Average house prices totaled GBP 215,444 in June.

Looking forward, much will depend on how broader economic conditions evolve, especially in the labor market, but also with respect to interest rates, Robert Gardner, Nationwide's chief economist, said.

"Subdued economic activity and ongoing pressure on household budgets is likely to continue to exert a modest drag on housing market activity and house price growth this year, though borrowing costs are likely to remain low," Gardner added.

The economist forecast house prices to rise by around 1 percent over the course of 2018.

Data showed that house prices climbed 2.2 percent on a yearly basis in the second quarter. London was the weakest performing region in the second quarter, with prices down 1.9 percent year-on-year.

Despite the recent underperformance, prices in the capital were more than 50 percent above their 2007 peak.

Meanwhile, the East Midlands was the strongest performing region, with prices up 4.4 percent year-on-year.

Data on the labor market did not support the US dollar



The euro rose in the first half of the day amid good data on production orders in Germany, and in the second half of Thursday, a weak report on the number of employees from ADP put pressure on the US dollar.

According to the report, orders in Germany's manufacturing sector in May of this year increased significantly and exceeded forecasts of economists. This suggests that Germany's economic recovery is gaining strength again after a weak start in the first quarter of this year.

According to the Federal Bureau of Statistics, the volume of orders for goods produced in Germany in May 2018 increased by 2.6% compared with April. The main reason for the increase was the growth in domestic orders by 4.3%, while export orders were up by 1.6% compared with April. Economists expected that in May orders will increase by 1.1%.

Data for April were also revised upward. A decline in orders in the manufacturing sector accounted for 1.6%, and not as previously reported 2.5%. Data on the labor market did not provide the expected support for the US dollar, as it turned out to be worse than the economists' forecasts.

According to the report, the number of jobs in the private sector in the US in June of this year increased by 177 thousand, while in May this figure was at 163 thousand. Economists predicted an increase in the number of jobs by 185 thousand.

The ADP said that the US labor market continues to move towards full employment and the number one problem for businesses is finding qualified workers. It is projected that, at the current rate of growth in employment, the shortage of labor will be exacerbated in all sectors and in companies of all sizes.

On Thursday, the British pound rose against the US dollar after statements made by the head of the Bank of England.

Mark Carney said in his speech that in the coming years it will be necessary to raise interest rates, since the weakness of the UK economy in the 1st quarter was apparently a temporary phenomenon. Many experts also agree that the economic downturn that was observed earlier this year is coming to an end, but they are less optimistic about the forecasts of further GDP growth.

Carney also drew attention to the fact that there are signs of a negative impact of trade conflicts on business activity in the UK, and the trade war, which is now being waged by the US against most developed countries, could be a catalyst for a wider slowdown in global economic growth.

Malaysia Inflation Eases More Than Forecast



Malaysia's consumer price inflation eased at a faster-than-expected pace in June to the lowest level in more than three years, following the withdrawal of the GST, figures from the Department of Statistics showed Wednesday.

Consumer prices rose 0.8 percent year-over-year in June, slower than the 1.8 percent increase in May. Economists had expected the inflation to moderate to 1.3 percent. For the first time within 40 months, the consumer price index recorded a value below 1.0 percent in June.

The abolishment of the GST by the government and discounts and price control measures during the Aidilfitri celebrations had a remarkable impact on goods prices, the agency said.

On a monthly basis, consumer prices dropped 1.2 percent in June.
