EUR/GBP climbed from the lows of sub 0.8360 today but has not made territory above the pivot and remains with a negative bias on the charts. Sterling had performed well yesterday after the unemployment rate dropped to 7.7% in August from 7.8% (nearer the BoE’s 7% “threshold”). For this week, “Sterling gains perhaps more sustainable on the crosses (EUR) than versus the USD as the Fed nears its tapering” explained research teams at TD Securities. Earlier, construction output was slightly stronger than consensus expectations, showing a 2.2% M/M rise in July. Despite a downward revision to June data, Q2 as a whole was revised higher, although not enough to have any real impact on GDP.
