Today the US will present data on the durable goods orders in August. The forecast is -1.4% vs. 4.4% in July, the core durable goods orders are expected at -0.4% vs. 1.3% a month earlier.
Today Janet Yellen speaks at the Financial Services Committee in the House of Representatives. If she repeats the thesis about the likely rate hike in December, it can stop the lowering of expectations concerning rate increase. If there is no emphasis, the pair GBP/USD can continue growing.
