- GBPUSD – Pound consolidates near $1.32 as data from UK and US shift sentiment. GBPUSD rose following a series on data from the UK, easing off from 6-day high on profit taking.

The pair currently trades below the descending trendline started on October 13th, below $1.32, while market participants look forward to the Retail Sales print and Carney’s speech.
- USDJPY – Dollar declines for a consecutive session against Yen despite positive US Retails Sales. The US Dollar closed below $113 as T-Bonds continued falling on doubts surrounding the US Tax Reform deal.
