GBPUSD surrenders to bears, new low in view?
“Investors await US Nonfarm Payrolls report which may signal the pace of inflation.”
Pound sterling adheres to bearish pressure as market participants placed higher bets upon US dollar prior to Nonfarm Payrolls report. For last month, investors are expecting Nonfarm Payrolls to increase by 268,000, a substantial decrease when compared to previous month.
