The cable got pressure and sales after the new data on Brexit survey.
The results of the new survey on Brexit showed that 51% of respondents wish the UK remains in the EU. But the survey also showed an increase of wanting to leave the EU, 46% against the previous 42%. It pressured the pair and forced it to drop below 1.45.
Yesterday the US personal spending came out better than expected, 1.0% vs. 0.7% and the previous 0.1%. CB consumer confidence showed 92.6 vs. 96.0.
Today the UK will present data on Manufacturing PMI, forecast 49.6 vs. the previous 49.2. However, after yesterday's collapse, the hopes for growth have almost evaporated. The mortgage approvals are expected to decline too.
The US is to publish data on ISM Manufacturing PMI, forecast 50.4 vs. the previous 50.8. We think we can see the continuation of decrease to the 1.44 area.
