Could GBP reject the bearish temptation?
“US posted positive developments in terms of labour market, prompting a shift in market sentiment.”
GBPUSD surrendered its gains, sliding down towards multi weeks low after latest data from US lends some support to greenback. According to reports, the number of unemployment benefits filing increased less than expected, signalling tight labour market with more room for further economic growth. Its resilience may prompt Federal Reserve to continue its policy tightening efforts, confounding speculation for a possible divergence anytime soon.
