Current trend

Yesterday the pair significantly grew amid poor macroeconomic statistics from the US. The services PMI’s came out substantially worse than forecasts which strengthened the pair by more than 200 points.

At the same time, inflation and the pace of economic growth in the UK remain very low, which is likely to force the Bank of England to keep its monetary policy loose. Therefore, in the medium-term the pair will remain under pressure due to the lack of strong factors that could support the Pound.

Today attention needs to be paid to BOE Governor Carney speech and labour market data from the US.
