This morning's data dump included plenty of third-quarter trading updates as well as news from the British Retail Consortium that prices have been falling on an annualised basis for 30 consecutive months. The Trader Nicole Elliott reports on the latter as the FTSE posts strong mining-led gains in morning trading.
IC TIP UPDATES:
Mortgage lender OneSavings Bank (OSB) added £986m of loans in the nine months to September. Management expects full-year growth slightly above last year's 29 per cent rate. But the shares were off slightly in morning trading. Buy.
