EUR/GBP - the battle of PMI’s

The pair showed interesting moves on Friday at first rising on expectations for positive EMU data, and then falling on disappointment from weak German retail sales and euro zone CPI reports. It’s true that the British currency looks more stable due to the series of positive data we’ve seen during half a year, what gives to GBP higher chances to be the first to see tightening from the national central bank. Such expectation may continue to pressure the pair further out, though any positive surprises from EMU data may be enough to trigger demand on the pair. Today we will see euro zone and UK PMI data. The ones that prove to be better than expected define the support on either of the currencies. To the upside the initial target may be at 0.8236 resistance level. To the downside the support comes at 0.8180 and followed by 0.8156.
