BOE’s McCafferty: It would be "prudent" to start raising interest rates

Fundamentally, Sterling finds support on BoE's McCaffertywho sticks to view interest rates should rise now, in line with a notable shift in tone from Central Banks turning more hawkish. However, for today, the US is closed for Independence day holiday's and there is little in the way of price action expected ahead of the rest of the week's PMI data for UK and European nations. 

EUR/GBP levels

EUR/GBP’s high of 0.8882 has not been confirmed by the daily RSI and could be a false break higher, according to analysts at Commerzbank. "Risks are growing on the downside. Below the 0.8719 16th June low will trigger losses to the 0.8632/30 200 and 55 day moving averages. We will need to close above 0.8882 to suggest further upside potential to 0.8987/0.9059, the 61.8% retracement and the highs from mid October."
