The pound may try again

The scheduled for release MPC meeting minutes may show the first signs of divergence within the camp. If anybody of the members starts to voice the need to hurry up with tightening, it may help the pair rally again with initial target at 1.7124 resistance level. As for now, it looks like the markets are in ‘wait and see’ mode.
