The FastBrokers Research Team affirms: The Cable is perking up this morning as the S&P futures fight to break loose of their psychological 1100 level. The GBP/USD has benefitted from a relatively quiet data wire from Britain since the CCC number beat expectations. However, the news flow will pick up tomorrow with the release of both CPI and RPI data points. Furthermore, the BoE will release its anticipated Inflation Letter.
The Pound is also stronger against the Euro today. EUR/GBP failed to hold above 0.8955 and weakened. The pair is testing a key support at 0.8910/00 and if it falls further Cable could gain momentum. The next support lies at 0.8830 (Sept 10 high).
