Trades around 1.5525, awaits US data

The spot is trading largely unchanged on the day around 1.5525 levels ahead of the data in the US, which could show the existing home sales declined 1.3% month-on-month in August. The pair turned lower from the high of 1.5568 seen in the early European session and dropped to 1.5505 before turning higher once again to 1.5550 levels.

The uptick in the US treasury yields and the upbeat action in the stock markets is keeping buying interest high in both USD and GBP, leading to a sideways action ahead of the US opening bell.
