EURGBP Stalled At the 50-day Moving Average


EURGBP seesaws around 0.90 mark as the pair digest the manufacturing PMI data from the UK and Europe. The manufacturing sector in the UK started strong the third quarter as the new orders rise for the first time the last five months while the output growth rose to three year highs. The final UK manufacturing PMI reported at 53.3 slightly lower than the expectations of 53.6 for July.

On the other side, the European Monetary Union (EMU) Manufacturing PMI in July registered in at 51.8 better than estimates of 51.1. The Germany Manufacturing PMI came in at 51, beating the expectations of 50 in July. The France Manufacturing PMI also beat the forecasts and came in at 52.4.
The main event for the pair this week is the Bank of England decision with analysts expecting the bank to hold interest rates unchanged and also keep unchanged the quantitative easing.

The risk to the downside for British pound remains as the coronavirus new infections continue to rise in some UK areas. The deadlock in Brexit negotiations with EU might also hurt the pound, while the discussions around negative interest rates in the UK also caps the sterling.
