With GBP/USD at weekly lows testing the 1.6695 support area, which gave way to the low at 1.6685, Marc Chandler, Global Head of Currency Strategy at Brown Brothers Harriman suggested that the UK’s employment data lends itself to the BOE who will remain cautious about raising rates too quickly. “In particular, the Q2 average earnings were -0.2% (expected -0.1%), the first negative print since 2009."Unemployment rate ticked lower to 6.4%, as expected. For cable, next level of support comes in the 200-day MA near $1.6660.”
