FXStreet (Moscow) - GBP/USD showed impressive correction from Monday’s highs, but stabilized 1.6675 in the morning, and tried to recover part of the losses reaching 1.6697 high by the moment.

The pound is still labor-focused

Inflation numbers only supported the understanding that the BOE is no rush to tighten the monetary policy. Nevertheless, despite the moderate retracement the pair still has chances to raise again if today’s labor data confirms the ongoing recovery in the sector. Given the new targets of the recent Inflation Report, the focus of the market may be on average earnings as an indicator of basic inflationary pressure, and a number of worked hours as the indicator of spare capacity in economy. The rise of both of them may support the pound on its move higher with initial target at 1.6728 resistance level.
