Double whammy with construction PMI beating expectations finally sees cable chewing through good offers/res into 1.5230 after holding 1.5180-85 earlier

Good news for the housing market at least but my concerns remain over the lending secured on property.. Not the basis for a sustainable recovery imho

Not that the intra day market is bothered by that.. GBPUSD 1.5242 as EURGBP gives up earlier gains having failed into strong offers at 0.7230
