GBP Markit Service
From the fundamental perspective, the data released by the Chartered Institute of Purchasing & Supply and Markit Economics in the United Kingdom announced that the Markit Service is 50 this month, tumbling from the 49.5 records of the previous month and down beating from the economist forecast of 49.7.
The PMI service is an indicator of the UK services sector’s economic situation. This provides an analysis of revenue and employment conditions. It is worth noting that the service sector in the UK does not affect the GDP as much as the manufacturing PMI does, whether positively or negatively. Traders want the highest reading possible because this would be deemed good for the GBP. Any reading above 50 indicates expansion, while a reading below 50 indicates contraction.
Considering the overall price movement over the last couple of days, purchasing the GBPJPY around current levels can be a better choice in the short to medium term.
