British Pound Stays Higher Against Dollar After Retail Sales

Dec. 20 (Bloomberg) -- The U.K. pound stayed higher against the dollar and was little changed versus the euro after a report showed retail sales were unchanged in November.

Sterling was 0.1 percent stronger at $1.6263 against the dollar at 9:38 a.m. London time. The pound traded at 81.38 pence, from 81.41 pence yesterday.

Sales including fuel were unchanged from October, when they fell 0.7 percent, the Office for National Statistics said today in London. The median forecast of 22 economists in a Bloomberg News survey was for a 0.4 percent increase.
