Current trend
The Sterling pound is heading lower as a result of strong demand on the US dollar after the holiday. UK Brexit worries, political uncertainty and firmer treasury yields add more pressure to the British pound. Focus will be on BoE Tenreyro who is a dovish speaker. He will address a speech later today. Meanwhile, the dollar kicked higher awaiting the factory orders data which is a main release that will be published later.
