FXStreet (Moscow) - GBP/USD opened at 1.6821, slid to 1.6815, and rebounded to 1.6830 at the moment.



Data-dependant pound



The pound is in interesting position right now – it looks oversold given 13 days of falling in a row. However, the economic indicators started to show signs of cooling after a long stretch of really strong data from the UK. The recent Manufacturing PMI was a bad surprise, and there could be even more disappointment ahead with Construction and Service indexes scheduled for release this week. Thus, the ability of the pound to rally may depend on data in short-term, and released in a couple of hours construction PMI is in focus.
