GBP/USD is very industrious in going lower on industrial data

By FXstreet.com | Updated July 30, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Moscow) - GBP/USD showed attempts to resume the rise right before the UK data, and moved to 1.7091 after the release.



Industrial data is out



The pair was trying to recover even before the release, hoping that UK Industrial Data will follow the recent trend of surprisingly strong numbers. The market remembered about the weaker than expected Manufacturing PMI in May, but much stronger than expected PMI in June, thus the come out was hard to predict. The Industrial Production came out at 2.3% m/m, -0.7% y/y vs 3.1% m/m, 0.2% y/y expected, confirming the British economy is still not growing at the full pace, thus, delaying the BOE tightening expectations. The pair moved to 1.7091 on the release, and the next target may be at 1.7074.
