Sterling Gives Back Gains Following Inflation Reports


The GBP/USD moved back toward unchanged giving back most of the rally it experienced following the UK inflation data.

PPI data undershot expectations slightly. Cable has settled back to net unchanged levels for the day, around 1.5420, down from the earlier high at 1.5457.

The index moved from negative to positive territory confirming the buy signal.
