Comments on June Monitor Data
The Monitor records only the number/share of companies, not the size of orders or number of jobs etc. Comparisons are with the previous month.
- Access to finance is the big news this month as the results are the most positive the Monitor has ever recorded with most sectors reporting noticeable improvements both for working and for investment capital.
- Prospecting and enquiry levels maintain their impetus for UK business, but are weaker amongst exporters.
- For the second month in a row, UK order balances are up and export orders only just remain in positive territory.
- Jobs, investment and confidence are all strongly positive.
