      BRITISH POUND TURNS TO INFLATION DATA AS EURO SINKS AHEAD OF EUROZONE GDP

    •   The British Pound remains bogged down by Brexit turmoil, but selling pressure could wane if July UK inflation data stimulates risk appetite

    •   Spot EURGBP prices might retrace lower if firm UK inflation keeps Bank of England rate cuts at bay amid deteriorating Eurozone GDP growth and rising prospects for ECB stimulus

      EURGBP has recorded an impressive stretch of gains since May with the influx of no-deal Brexit risk driven by Prime Minister Boris Johnson taking over as head of British Parliament. Meanwhile, the ECB has communicated a monetary policy stance that appeared less dovish than expected which has exacerbated upward price action in spot EURGBP. That said, the currency pair seems overdue for a retracement lower and spot EURGBP selling pressure could be sparked by Wednesdays high-impact economic data due for release out of the UK and EU.

      Take a look at the DailyFX Economic Calendar for a comprehensive list of upcoming economic events and data releases!

      EURGBP forex traders will likely turn to the latest readings on UK inflation and Eurozone GDP slated to cross the wires at 8:30 GMT and 9:00 GMT respectively. Although, German GDP data will be released slightly earlier at 6:00 GMT Wednesday which could preview the headline Eurozone GDP figure considering that Germany is the cornerstone of the EUs economic engine. Increasingly pessimistic outlook and disappointing data prints for the Eurozone economy does not bode well for bullish Euro prospects as it will likely accelerate expectations for additional ECB stimulus.

      Also, the potential of UK inflation coming in hotter than the 1.8% figure expected could keep BOE rate cut bets at bay with the central bank opting to stay sidelined as the latest Brexit developments unfold. According to overnight swaps, rate traders are pricing in a 55% probability that the BOE cuts rates by 25 basis points before year-end.
