On Tuesday the pair GBP/USD has slightly grown due to technical correction. However, the USD is still supported by the data on the US GDP, which has grown by 5% versus expectations of 4.3%. Volatility is not expected to be high this week; however, the data on business activity in the manufacturing sector of the UK, which is scheduled for the release on Friday, can trigger the rise in the British currency.
Today, the number of applications for unemployment benefits in the USA will be released. However, this index has already reached the record low.
