GBP/USD Fundamental Analysis
The GBP USD made brisk progress yesterday and today morning as the dollar strength underwent a correction after the release of the FOMC minutes. The markets had been subdued for most of the day yesterday but the action has picked up ever since the release of the FOMC minutes during the middle of the NY session yesterday and this action has seen the correction of the dollar almost all across the board.
We have the services PMI from the UK and the ADP Employment data, Non-Manufacturing PMI and Unemployment Claims from the US today. All these data will be keenly watched by the market as a lead up to the important NFP report tomorrow and the rest of the week could set the tone for the markets for the entire month. Strong data from the US over the next couple of days could see the return of the dollar strength, which could then extend to rest of the month.
