Current trend

As markets are waiting for the Bank of England meeting tomorrow and its Interest Rate decision, the volatility in the pair is low.

The pair is under pressure amid expectations of the Bank of England Minutes and positive macroeconomic data from the US.

Today attention needs to be paid to the ADP Employment Change for October in the US that tends to affect the market dynamics, as it perceived as the leading indicator to important NFPR data, due on Friday. In addition, pay attention to the Markit Services PMI for October and Fed’s Yellen testifies later in the day.

Support and resistance

As long as the pair remains below key resistance levels at 1.5425 (ЕМА144), 1.5470 (ЕМА200 on the daily chart), short positions look preferable.
