The Pound extended its advance versus the Dollar for the ninth consecutive day, as U.K. jobless claims unexpectedly fell in December after the Claimant Count Change came out -4.1k better than the expected -1.4k. Only breaching the 1.6040 resistance level will extend gains in the GBP/USD pair, otherwise a rebound could be seen. Overall, GBP/USD traded with a low of 1.5942 and with a high of 1.6036. Today, the CBI Industrial Trends Orders are expected at -1 vs. -3 previously.
