Here is a UK economic data item that downloads economic time series from the Office for National Statistics website.
It can be used to download almost any economic indicator for the United Kingdom economy.
Currently it is set to download the Average Earnings Index for the whole UK economy. The Average Earnings Index, AEI, is a key indicator of how fast earnings are growing in Great Britain. It compares the earnings of the latest month with the last base year earnings. To get more information on the Average Earnings Index, go to: http://www.statistics.gov.uk/StatBase/Product.asp?vlnk=2484&More=Y
The AEI index is released monthly and its dataset contains four time series. These series are associated with the following ticker symbols:
^LNMM: Average earnings-Index series, (2000=100), not seasonally adjusted.
^LNMQ: Average earnings-Index series, (2000=100), seasonally adjusted.
^LNMU: Average earnings, Percentage change, seasonally adjusted.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
