    The sterling maintains its daily advance so far in spite of the softer result from UK’s manufacturing PMI during December. However, the initial bid tone seems to remain somehow, supported by favourable risk sentiment and better prints from Mortgage Approvals, Consumer Credit and Net Lending to Individuals.
