    UK Consumer Confidence At 18-Month High

    Confidence among British consumers rose to its highest level in 18 months in November as they turned more upbeat over the prospects of their personal as well as general economic situation, a survey by GfK NOP showed Friday.

    The headline index rose to -22 in November from -30 in October. This was the highest reading since May 2011 and better than forecasts for no change.

    The surprise improvement could be influenced by the fact that consumers "now think things can't get any worse," said Nick Moon, managing director of social research at GfK.

    "The direction things head in the New Year will be crucial in determining whether this is a short-term spike or the start of a long-term improvement in people's spending habits," Moon said.

    Consumers appeared optimistic about their family finances as well as the general economic conditions. The indicator assessing households' outlook for the general economy rose to -15 in November from -29 in October.

    The index reflecting the view of family finances over the coming 12 months rose to -7 from -13 over the same period. The indicator assessing consumers' willingness to make major purchase rose -26 in November from -33 a month earlier.

    A survey by the Confederation of British Industry revealed Thursday that retail sales in the U.K. improved for the third consecutive month in November.

    The British economy exited recession in the third quarter, with the gross domestic product expanding at the fastest pace in five years. However, the Bank of England forecast the economy to contract again in the third quarter.

    Australia Has A$14.9 Billion Current Account Deficit

    Australia saw a seasonally adjusted current account deficit of A$14.900 billion in the third quarter of 2012, the Australian Bureau of Statistics said on Tuesday - down 20 percent from the previous three months.

    The headline figure missed forecasts for a shortfall of A$14.55 billion following the downwardly revised deficit of A$12.369 billion in the second quarter (originally reported as A$11.801 billion).

    The deficit on the balance of goods and services climbed A$2.531 billion to A$4.645 billion, down 120 percent on quarter.

    The primary income deficit fell A$34 million to A$10.023 billion, close to flat on quarter.

    In seasonally adjusted chain volume terms, the surplus on goods and services spiked A$490 million or 51 percent from A$964 million in the June quarter to A$1.454 billion in the September quarter.

    This is expected to contribute 0.1 percentage points to growth in the September quarter volume measure of GDP.

    Also on Tuesday, the ABS said that approvals for Australia's private sector house construction decreased in October by a seasonally adjusted 1.5 percent. The seasonally adjusted estimate for total dwelling approvals was down 7.6 percent, following two months of increases.

    The Bureau's seasonally adjusted estimate for private sector dwellings excluding houses was down 18 percent, compared to increases of 29.4 percent and 21.4 percent in the preceding two months.

    The seasonally adjusted estimate of the value for overall building approvals was down 6.7 percent. The value for residential housing was down 12.9 percent, while the value for non-residential
    construction approvals was up 6.7 percent.

    South Korea Q3 GDP Adds Just 0.1%

    South Korea's gross domestic product gained a seasonally adjusted 0.1 percent in the third quarter of 2012 compared to the previous three months, the Bank of Korea said in Thursday's revised report - marking the slowest rate of increase in 11 quarters.

    The headline figure is down from the 0.2 percent growth in the October 26 preliminary reading, and it also slows from the 0.3 percent increase in the second quarter.

    Real gross national income added 0.5 percent on quarter, while nominal gross national income fell 0.4 percent.

    On the production side, manufacturing shed 0.4 percent on declines in sub-sectors such as transport equipment, precision instruments and non-metallic minerals, the bank said.

    Construction climbed 2.8 percent, centering on civil engineering. Services added 0.1 percent, with gains for instance in wholesale and retail trade, restaurants and hotels and financial intermediation and despite declines in education and real estate and renting, the bank said.

    On the expenditure side, private consumption gained 0.7 percent, as expenditures on durables such as mobile phones and non-durables such as electricity, gas and other fuels increased.

    Facilities investment dipped 4.8 percent on losses in machinery including semiconductor manufacturing equipment and transport equipment including automobiles.

    Construction investment added 0.1 percent, as investment in civil engineering expanded. Exports gained 2.8 percent on quarter, as those of petroleum products and of wireless telecommunication devices increased, the bank said.

    On a yearly basis, GDP was up 1.5 percent versus the preliminary read for a 1.6 percent gain after rising 2.3 percent in the previous three months.

    On the production side, the manufacturing sector gained 1.1 percent on year, centering on petroleum and chemical products and electrical and electronic equipment. Construction shed 1.8 percent, due to the sluggishness in building construction and civil engineering. Services expanded by 2.4 percent.

    On the expenditure side, private consumption climbed 1.6 percent on year, led by expenditures on durables such as mobile phones and on non-durables such as electricity, gas and other fuels.

    Facilities investment dropped 6.5 percent, as investment in semiconductor manufacturing equipment and in automobiles decreased, the bank said. Construction investment fell 0.2 percent, as civil engineering increased slightly but buildings construction was sluggish.

    Exports jumped 2.9 percent centering on petroleum products, and imports by 1.1 percent owing to increases for example in imports of crude oil and natural gas.

    Nominal gross national income fell 0.4 percent on quarter, owing to a large decrease in net factor income from abroad and despite the small quarter-on-quarter increase in nominal gross domestic product.

    Real gross national income expanded 0.5 percent compared to the previous quarter on the back of improvements in the terms of trade. The GDP deflator increased 0.9 percent on year.

    The gross saving ratio was 30.1 percent in Q3, down 1.1 percentage points on quarter, as final consumption expenditure increased while gross national disposable income declined.

    The gross domestic investment ratio was 26.0 percent, down 1.7 percentage points on quarter, due mostly to a decline in facilities investment.

    Upon the release of the data, the Bank of Korea conceded that it was unlikely the country would hit its 2012 forecast growth target of 2.4 percent. The economy is seen expanding 3.2 percent next year.
