U.K. claimant count drops far less than expected

NEW YORK (Forex News Now) – The number of Britons claiming unemployment benefits fell by far less than expected in July, official data showed on Wednesday in one of the day’s spotlight FX news events.

Analysts had expected a more substantial decline of 17,000 in June, two major forex news outlets reported.
