    3 Numbers: UK money supply in focus, US loans, FOMC

    Daily Shot: Eurozone turning Japanese
    It would appear that volatility is returning to the markets as global growth fears and disappointing US retail sales have traders running for the exits.

    UK mortgage approvals decline in August:

    Mortgage approvals slumped to 64,200 in August, a three-month low since May's print 61,700. Analysts had looked for 65,000 approvals, which would have been 1.7% monthly drop from July's downward revised number of approvals of 66,100.

    The UK economy has averaged 66,900 mortgage approvals per month in the first eight months of the year compared to 57,300 in 2013 and 50,200 in 2012.

    We also got numbers on consumer credit and money supply. The former rose by £0.9 billion on net in August vs. £0.8bn expected and £1.1bn prior. The money supply (M4) dropped 1.5% y/y vs. -1% in July.

    The UK is on track for full-year growth of close to 3% this year, up from 1.7% last year. GBPUSD is mostly unchanged for the day, down 0.1%.
