FXStreet (Moscow) - GBP/USD was more reserved than EUR/USD adding just about 15 pips to 1.6475 on news about Russian-Ukrainian agreement. The just released UK PMI moved the pair to 1.6492 initially.



Reflexes and corrections



The pound got hit by the recent YouGov poll results on Scotland Independence vote. It revealed that the gap between the “No” and the “Yes” vote has narrowed to 53% and 47%, accordingly. However, the initial market reaction probably had a reflective nature, and today we could see a correction higher, especially after Services PMI exceeded expectations. The UK index came out at 60.5 vs 58.5 expected following the yesterday’s positive surprise from the Construction sector, and confirming the British recovery is still on tap. The pair is trading around 1.6480 area, as large sellers’ interest is rumored around 1.6485 and 1.6500 levels.
