Yesterday’s trading was in the narrow range of 1.6390-1.6430. Today, sideways trend is likely to continue as now important news is expected. For tomorrow a speech of the head of the Bank of England is scheduled as well as quarterly report on British inflation rate. The pair may go up o the level of 1.6500, but it is doubtful that it can consolidate at this level.

It is likely that the pair will be traded in the sideways. It is recommended to place limit orders to buy at the bottom boundary of the range (1.6390); sell orders are advisable at the level of 1.6445.
