As soon as Marc Carney started to doubt he needs to hurry up with tightening, the PMI data reminded him of the strength of the economy growth. Two sectors (manufacturing and construction) have already beaten the forecasts, and if services sector follows the gang, we may see new multi-year highs with initial target at 1.7183 followed by 1.7201. This will be another reason for the MPC to believe the economy is in good shape, and is still working on it.
