FXStreet (Moscow) - GBP/USD started the day at 1.6787, and is gradually climbing higher reaching 1.6823 by the moment.

More data wanted

The pound was a star yesterday as the unemployment data confirmed the British labor market is on the way to recovery at decent speed. However, the break above 1.68 is not an easy task, as the market needs even more strong evidence in order to price in the expectations of looming tightening from the BOE. Today the European economic calendar is practically empty, thus, the attention will be on American session with US retail sales in store. The initial target to the upside may be at 1.6821 resistance, while the downside may be capped by support at 1.6779.
