UK consumers find a bit of confidence, still see high inflation, BofA says

COVID-19 pandemic, in London

LONDON (Reuters) - Bank of America said on Tuesday its British consumer confidence indicator rose two points in July to its highest since March although it remained consistent with a recession.

The bank's monthly survey also found consumer inflation expectations were largely unchanged through July after falling over several months.

"Expectations are still high, suggesting risks of further second-round effects, but the Bank of England can take some comfort that the slowing economy may be ameliorating inflation expectations," BofA economist Robert Wood said.
