Second-tier data from UK leaves the pound without catalysts

The series of significant UK data disappointments made the investors reduce the long positions on pound. Nevertheless, we need to stress that the current PMI levels even being lower than expected are still close to historical peaks. It means that the British economy is not cooling – we just see the natural correction after a long row of better than expected data. With that in mind, we still see good potential for GBP/USD rise in the nearest future. Though today there is a lack of economic catalysts, euro zone data may be enough to trigger the rebound from current support at pivot point 1.6391. The 1.6446 resistance level is hard to go through, though once broken, we will see the quick move to 1.6489.
