Key Quotes

"GBP is weak, trading through important technical support. The drop has been multifold but mainly on the back of a disappointing PMI manufacturing,which fell to 56.7. In addition, there are rising concerns that the UK and in particular London housing market is showing signs of overheating and moving towards a bubble. Finally, an WSJ article draws attention to risks surrounding the UK’s current account deficit of 5% of GDP."

"GBP/USD shortterm technicals: mixed but increasingly bearish as spot drops easily through technical support. The next level of support lies at the January low of 1.6310, a drop below here would open up a test down to the 100 ‐ day MA of 1.6247."
