GBP/USD consolidates below 1.53 ahead of UK data

FXStreet (Edinburgh) - The sterling is trading in a tight range at the end of the week, taking GBP/USD to the 15275/70 band so far.

GBP/USD eyes on UK releases

The pair has attempted a breakout of the 1.5300 handle on Thursday, although the up move lacked of follow trough and stalled ahead of the key 200-day sma just above 1.5340, prompting spot to return to current levels.

Next of relevance for the pair will be UK’s Public Sector Finance figures, while a speech by St. Louis Fed’s J.Bullard will be the only scheduled event across the pond today.
