FX:GBPUSD   British Pound/U.S. Dollar
Same onld rhetoric from Kashkari - nonetheless i remain short GBP$ on rallies into 1.315/25, given DXY's advances GBP$ has been an outstanding under-performer given 1.315 is the levels we closed on friday/ opened on monday. However, Manufacturing and Construction PMIs are a risk, any topside sterling could certainly trade to the upper levels of the range (1.325) and possibly even test 1,33 - depending on the beat.

TP levels should be 50-100pips lower at 1.3100 or 1.3050, longer term trades, or bets on USD Jobs report outperforming, with UK PMIs under-performing could easily aim for 1.2910.

Risks for the PMIs are neutral going in, they have ben set higher than last, however UK data has generally outperformed, though GDP was flat and business investment negative (though better than expected). Risks for NFP are neutral-downside, given the 180k "low bar", however the downside risks are the fact weve had 2 massively outperforming prints which could see some mean reversion making this print unusually lower.. The upside is obviously the low figure and the fact ADP Non-farms came in above expectations, though only by a few 1000 and ADP-NFP correlation isnt that high.

Nonetheless, I remain short on rallies data dependent.. given the BOEs monpol changes and the FOMCs low but started hike cycle the equilibrium should be well below 1.30 - especially as PM Theresa May confirms no back doors will be used to void brexit and that will definitely go ahead.

USD STIR Fed Funds trade higher today also for september implying a 27% probability vs 24% yesterday which gives more upside arguements for USD, though long term govies today trade broadly lower across the 2-30yr curve but only marginally, with 2yrs down 2.4bps (-2.9%) on the day. Though Sterling UK 2yr govies trade 1.4bps (9.09%) lower

Are you still short after the surprising UK PMI # ?
No had to cut the shorts last night. the PMIs were too volatile, sterling shorts from here are risky. check my latest post out, construction and services PMIs are fundamental to the short sterling approach.
