FXstreet.com (London) - GBP/USD has been volatile today ahead of US NFP’s tomorrow, with turbulence in the markets again while traders digest surprise moves from the ECB.

GBP/USD was first offered with a benign BoE, while the ECB then fuelled the dollars fire with a surprise cut in an aggressive move from the Central Bank in times of low levels of inflation. The pair was stable on 1.6020 and gradually reclaimed territory with a grind higher into the 1.61 handle, marking a high of 1.6116 despite US GDP coming in better than the consensus. Sterling is now holding support on 1.6070/80 levels while markets await tomorrows NFP’s. A sub 100k NFP print will be blamed on the government shutdown, and 150k+ should see 10yr USTs continue on their path lower.
