The Pound has followed yesterday’s dip with further losses against major currencies, with US Dollar exchange rates particularly volatile after good retail sales data released earlier on.

European data out showed weak production figures, but the Euro failed to move much, finishing about a cent lower than yesterday. A Pound now buys Euros for overseas transfer just above the 1.10 mark.

Friday sees Eurozone GDP data released in the morning, as well as German data and US consumer sentiment in the afternoon. There are no major releases scheduled for the Pound.
