The pair GBP/USD shows consolidation
Yesterday we finally saw profit-taking on the weakening of US political factors. The pound fell slightly during the European trading session, but then recovered the lost position.
Today we may see the continuing consolidation of the pair GBP/USD
Today the US Trade Balance is expected with no significant change: -45.0 billion against -45.2 billion in November. In December the consumer credit is expected to decline from $24.5 billion to 20.3 billion.
This week the US Treasury debt attracts 53 billion dollars, which actually increases the demand for the US currency.
Today the UK will present data on the Halifax house price index, which is expected to decline from 1.7% to 0.2%.
