General overview

The IFO institute weak release may put pressure on the pair EUR/GBP which will give some support to the British pound. The US April inflation data is based on the leading indicators and did not disappoint GBP/USD bears.

On the other hand, we have observed the UK short-term and long-term bond yields increase on the debt market which is a negative factor for the national currency.
