EUR/GBP rejected at hourly 50-MA ahead of UK GDP

FXStreet (Mumbai) - The EUR/GBP cross was offered at a high of 0.7050 ahead of the second estimate of the UK third quarter GDP.

Focus on UK GDP

The data is likely to leave the GDP unchanged at 2.3%y/y and 0.5%q/q. still, the traders are cautiuos as a probability of the positive/negative surprise always exists. Meanwhile, markets would be interested to see if the consumer demand held up well and how much of a drag on growth was the trade balance.

At 0.7038, the pair is eyeing the hourly 100-MA at 0.7033. The bid tone on the EUR weakened some what as the European equity index futures trimmed early losses.
