FXstreet.com (Moscow) - GBP/USD is treading water at 1.6470 area scared of current highs, but not ready to fall.

Market has some good expectations on UK data

Although the overnight GBP moves looked quite boring, we do expect some interesting developments in the nearest hours. The UK data today will be the focus of currency market trades. Now, when we know the IMF revised the GDP forecast higher from 1.9 to 2.4 per cent, the release of better than expected labor report may trigger even more demand on the pound. The unemployment level is forecasted to fall down to 7.3 per cent, and if it comes out even lower, the pair is bound to break the nearest resistance level at 1.6507 with initial target at 1.6542.
