UK retail sales once again increase

For a fourth consecutive month, UK retail sales rose, after data for August was released earlier today.

The report, which was released by the ONS (Office for National Statistics) said that retail sales volumes rose by 0.8% compared to July. The gain was attributed in part to sales of DIY and household goods. Overall, growth has slowed down from levels seen immediately after lockdown.  Where sales surged close to 12.1% and 13.9% in May and June respectively.

The FTSE 100 was down 0.7% as the growth came in less than expected. GBP also dropped against USD on the news.

TikTok eyeing an IPO

After months of uncertainty surrounding the future of its U.S. operations, it was reported today that TikTok could be set for an IPO if President Trump approves their pending acquisition by Oracle.

President Trump is expected to decide on TikTok’s fate in the US in the next 24-36 hours, at which point, ByteDance, the parent company of the social media giant, plans to IPO TikTok’s global business.

Shares on Oracle were down as speculation grows on whether the deal will be approved by the U.S. government.
