The pair managed to consolidate above the level of 1.6600. Retail sales in February reached the level of 1.7% against the forecast of 0.5%. Experts fear that the same index in March will be weaker. British Final GDP for Q4 will be made public today, however it is not supposed to attract investors’ attention. Trading is expected to be sluggish in the narrow range.
