Introducing the Bloomberg Brexit Barometer. This custom index, which combines key measures of the U.K. economy in one number, makes its public debut today. The barometer will help you keep track as Britain prepares to separate from the European Union. The index, which is made up of indicators for employment, inflation, growth and uncertainty, is updated daily. The more it goes up, the better the economy — and vice versa.
Today, the barometer declined slightly from Friday, at 30, as financial markets were largely calm two days before Prime Minister Theresa May officially starts the separation process.
