Key Trading Recommendation

The UK manufacturing production data is a crucial indicator of the health of the British economy. Furthermore, it has a significant impact on the GBP strength.

However, given the current global situation, it is advisable to avoid entering positions during these news events since the market will have higher than average volatility, meaning that currencies could move in either direction without a definite trend for a short while.
