Nothing is lost



The pound is still not moving, although the correction after such a long string of selling could be logical. The market just stopped to believe the British economy is gathering pace, and recent reports did a lot to confirm this notion. However, nothing is lost for the pound, and even the scheduled for release today second-tier data may revive the hope again. For example, pay attention to the mortgage approval number as the housing data is scrutinized by the BOE in order to prevent any bubbles evolving. If the readings come above expectations, it may support the interest to the pound again.
