Double confirmation, GBPUSD bound to depreciate?
“GBPUSD give in to bears as data shows rate hike conundrum.”
Pound sterling met with fresh supply as investors react towards last week’s soft data from the UK. For the second quarter and last month respectively, both GDP and Manufacturing Production came shrank, albeit above consensus forecast. Evidently, both data casts hardship upon Bank of England as they try to combat inflation and at the same time, balanced out with the current economic situation. For the week ahead, investors will pay attention to UK’s employment report as well as Federal Reserve’s meeting minutes to gauge market sentiment.
