UK Market Services PMI News
The Chartered Institute of Purchasing & Supply and the Markit Economics anticipates releasing numbers on Friday (February 19, 2021). According to economists, the Market Services PMI registered a reading of 40.5 in February, as compared to the reading of 39.5, in the month before.
The PMI service reflects the condition of sales and employment within the UK. It is worth mentioning here that the UK service sector does not influence the GDP as much as the Manufacturing PMI does. Generally speaking, a reading above 50 suggests a bullish market for the GBPUSD ahead and vice versa.
Given the macro-economic outlook of the pair over the past few days, buying it around current levels might help to make some profits in the short to medium term.
