GBP/USD has slipped through the net but price action is a mere drift and slow and moreover remains in consolidation after a dramatic series of events overnight with the pound kicked into touch on the back of the UK September CPI inflation data.

The week ahead delivers us a number of key data releases from the FED at the end of the week that are likely to be the next driving force in the pair and includes and speech from Yellen.
