GBP/USD - 1.5155.. Although euro is currently trading close to its y'day's 2-month high of 1.2713, cable has come off more fm its y'day's 1.5241 high as BOE's unchanged rate decision n 200 bln pound bond purchase program did not impress traders n long liquidation plus cross selling in sterling pressured price to 1.5102 in NY.

Watch out for U.K. PPI n trade balance at 08:30GMT esp. the latter, any number bigger than the forecasted range of -7.0 to -7.3 bln is a 'sell'.
