Cable relinquish the 1.3700 handle for now...

The writing was on the wall for the Pound after early UK data disappointment in the form of retail sales and public sector finances, but the so called flash PMIs were anything but, and have seen Cable relinquish the 1.3700 handle, while Eur/Gbp has rebounded to 0.8900+ from its pre-ECB low around 0.8830. Another downturn in broad risk sentiment, softer crude and commodity prices have combined with a retreat in several currency counterparts to save the Buck from a further collapse, while perma bulls may also derive more encouragement from the fact that the DXY fended off the latest attempt to flush out underlying and psychological bids at 90.000, albeit even more narrowly (at 90.039 vs 90.043 yesterday). Indeed, the index and Greenback overall remain depressed, with rebounds running into offers at increasingly lower levels and readily, ie 90.286 so far compared to 90.454 on Thursday and 90.699 the day before. Ahead, US Markit preliminary PMIs and existing home sales are scheduled and could provide impetus, but perhaps on the good news is bad and vice-versa mantra for the downbeat Dollar.
