    "Rebounding risk appetite should ease global funding concerns working in favour of current account deficit FX such as the pound."
    - Morgan Stanley (based on Reuters)

    Pair's Outlook
    Yesterday disappointment in UK's inflation outlook pushed the GBP/USD significantly lower, with the four-week up-trend failing to hold the losses. The Sterling is expected to recover after such a gradual fall, as technical indicators are once again giving bullish signals. Lower unemployment is to boost the Cable, with the closest area to limit the gains located only around 1.4385. However, since the GBP/USD is on the backfoot, we might also observe another slump beyond the immediate support of 1.4255, especially if the fundamental data is in favour of the American Dollar.

    Traders' Sentiment
    The share of long positions now takes up 63% of the market (previously 60%), while the buy order portion slid from 65 to 52%.
