British data and FOMC minutes to drive the action Wednesday

British data on Wednesday will include Public Sector Net Borrowing, Industrial Orders and Mortgage Approvals. None of those data points are particularly critical, but the recent light data flow will puts extra emphasis on this information in traders’ eyes. Later in the day Wednesday, all eyes will be on the release of the US FOMC meeting minutes.

Technical outlook for GBP/USD

Technicians say that GBP/USD may still run up to 1.5738 before topping out. However, there is a technical contingent that feels GBP/USD has already topped and is now headed down towards the ultimate target of 1.4551. Shorter-term support comes into play at the 1.5600 (previous resistance) and then 1.5422 (the 8/14 pivot low).
