- Fed policymakers sticking to the script
- US data continues to point to a strong economy
- Fib rebound may suggest we’ve seen a correction in GBPUSD
It isn’t the busiest week as far as UK and US economic data is concerned but there are still a few pieces worth keeping an eye on. As well as, of course, the scattering of central bank speak.
So far, policymakers appear to remain consistent with the message from the last meeting despite Friday’s surprisingly strong jobs report.
The services PMI on Monday was also far better than expected, further supporting the view that the economy is far from suffering under the weight of high interest rates.
Have we just seen a correction in GBPUSD?
But perhaps it’s the technicals that could prove to be more interesting this week.

On Monday the pair broke below the neckline of a quadruple top formation around 1.26. While it has since pulled back, it could just be a corrective move and the rotation off the 50% Fibonacci retracement level today may support that view.
