Reminder that Hammond downgraded GDP previsions yesterday during the Budget Statement. GBP was on a slide lower in the half hour ahead of the number , stabilises here @ 1.3295.
The slide prior to the numbers must be attributed to the Euro demand and some profit taking in case of a weaker outcome .The 1.3270/80 support seems good enough for a hold this morning as the components come out inline or slightly above expectations.
