TheLFB-Forex.com Trade Desk Thoughts: U.K. house prices rose unexpected in May, being the second increase in the last three moths. The average price for a U.K. house in May reached £ 154,016, up 1.2% from April. The annual rate of decline is now standing at -11.3%, from -15.0% in April. Despite this, TheLFB-Forex.com Trade Team believes the bottom in the housing market has not been hit, even though some improvements have been seen in the last few months.
