GBP/USD Analysis

As expected, yesterday was a very quiet day. There are several important events due today so it is likely the news will drive the price today. Unless the news is very dramatically unexpected, we can expect the bearish trend line and support level at 1.6623 to hold in advance of tomorrow’s FOMC minutes release.
GBPUSD 81914
Concerning the GBP, there is important news due at 9:30am London time: year on year CPI. Regarding the USD, there will be data releases at 1:30pm London time concerning CPI and Building Permits. Therefore it is likely to be a fairly lively day for this pair, especially after the New York session begins.
