FXStreet (Moscow) - GBP/USD slid to 1.6826 low on the worse than expected UK Industrial Production data.



British IP



GBP/USD tried to target 1.69 area on the recent positive surprises from the UK Service and Construction PMIs. However, the just released IP data ruined all the plans coming out at 0.3% m/m, 1.2% y/y vs 0.6% m/m, 1.5% y/y expected. It raised fears about the peaking British economy again, sending the pair back to 1.6826 low from which it rebounded to 1.6840 area by the moment.
