    GBP/USD Rose to 1.5620 on UK Construction Data; Falls on Firm Dollar


    The pound gains 20 pips to test 1.5620 after the stronger than expected UK June Markit/CIPS Construction PMI of 58.1 to a 4-month high versus the median forecast of 56.3. 

    The US dollar however, came in bid in the European mid-morning session, thus pushing the pound back to retrace to 1.5590 as traders speculate a good U.S. Non-Farm Payroll later out today at 12:30 GMT. The median forcast calls for a 230,000 increase in the June payrolls versus 280,000 in May, while the Unemployment rate is expected to decrease to 5.4% from 5.5%
