Sterling had a good day yesterday even though there was an absence of data released across the global markets.

Mortgage approval data today will shed some light on demand in the housing sector whilst Bank of England officials testifying on inflation could affect the markets early on. Moreover, with revised first quarter growth figures due on Thursday sterling prices could experience increased volatility as the week goes on, especially if there is a big revision from the original estimate .

The euro was fairly flat yesterday, with no movement either way against the US dollar, and losing half a cent to a better performing sterling as a survey of Business Climate in Germany underwhelmed the markets. Today is even quieter on the news front than yesterday, but we can still expect to see volatility as the euro remains susceptible to releases from around the world. Increasing concerns that Germany – Europe’s powerhouse – is struggling to return to a state of growth will affect the euro’s relative price as the week progresses due to the substantial amount of key data released throughout the remainder of the week.
