UK GDP could give the pound a stronger end to the week (Mike Vaughan)

AUDGBP Braces for an Important Week of Data

This mornings trading has followed yesterdays trend with the pound having gained nearly 1 cents against the AUD and nearly 1% against the NZD. Risk sentiment seems to be the drive in today’s and yesterday’s, both currencies seeing a big sell off following funding concerns in China – GBP/AUD has gone back through 1.68 and GBP/NZD 1.935

Tomorrow we have UK GDP data that is forecast to show  a slight improvement  from the final revision of Q2 – the figures are expected to come in at 0.8% up from 0.7% and could lend further support to the pound to finish off the trading week.

Current market conditions are proving difficult to forecast, particularly when looking at pound against the USD and higher risk currencies such as the AUD and NZD.
