Italy 2017 GDP forecast raised to 1.4-1.5% vs 1.1% prev
Italian treasury's chief economist out with his/her own forecasts 12 Sept
- 2018 GDP "well above" 1.2% vs govt f/c of 1.0%
So unofficial f/casts per se but you'd hope/think the chief economist might have a clue.
Ok ok maybe not but posting for info anyhow.
Reuters reporting but no further deets/rationale as yet.
EURUSD 1.1963 with EURJPY still perky on an underpinned USDJPY but EURGBP still under threat but so far holding 0.9000
So, simple process of conclusion, yep, GBPJPY on a roll higher at 145.70 from 144.00 earlier.
