Sterling stays weak versus euro, vulnerable to UK worries LONDON: Sterling edged away from a 9-1/2 month low against the euro on Tuesday as investors took profit on the euro's recent gains, but it remained vulnerable to renewed selling on concerns about a fragile British economy.   Data showed UK annual CPI inflation remained at 2.7 percent in December, in line with expectations and staying well above the Bank of England's 2.0 percent target.   Elevated inflation may discourage the bank's policymakers from opting for further quantitative easing in the coming months and the pound rose very briefly against the dollar after the data.   However, it quickly turned lower, with analysts saying there were concerns that high inflation could worsen an already weak economy by reducing British consumers' spending power.   Traders also said some in the market had positioned for an above-forecast number.   "There was a bit of a muted reaction to the CPI data. It didn't deliver any shocks and was hard for the market ...

UK gilts edge higher before inflation data LONDON: British government bonds followed US and German debt slightly higher on Tuesday before the release of December inflation figures, after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke expressed concerns about the pace of US economic recovery.   Bernanke said in a speech late on Monday the US economy appeared to be responding to the Fed's aggressive easing of monetary policy, but not as fast as it would like.   "I want to be clear that while we've made progress, there's ...

Sterling edges up, CPI data may give short-lived boost LONDON: Sterling edged away from a 9-1/2 month low against the euro on Tuesday before inflation data that could dim the prospects of more monetary easing, and as investors took profit on the euro's recent gains.   British inflation is expected to remain elevated at 2.7 percent in December.
