Financial markets have typically reacted only briefly in the past 15 years to terror attacks such as that on Britain's parliament on Wednesday -- mainly because these events rarely have a major impact on the economy or economic policy settings. This is because in recent history the economies of most countries have remained resilient in the aftermath of acts of terror, market participants said. "It's clear that terror attacks affect people, but over the last few years we have seen that it doesn't affect spending habits or economic fundamentals," said Investec economist Philip Shaw.

Britain's battered pound recovered half a percent against the dollar on Wednesday, propped up by corporate demand as investors looked for bargains after it hit two-month lows the previous day. The pound has lost almost a fifth of its value versus the greenback since last June's vote to leave the European Union, with currency traders concerned that the foreign flows of capital that Britain relies on just to fund its gaping current account deficit will dry up. Against the euro, sterling climbed 0.3 percent to hit 87.02 pence.

Britain's unemployment rate fell unexpectedly to its lowest since 2005, the data showed, but pay growth worsened to 2.2 percent, its weakest since last April, at a time when inflation is rising. The pound fell from around $1.2230 before the data to $1.2193 by 0947 GMT, still up around 0.3 percent on the day but down from an earlier high of $1.2258.. The numbers also ate into its gains against the euro, leaving it up just 0.1 percent at 87.15 pence to the single currency.
