Forex: GBP/USD eases from 1.5750 after US factory orders (Barcelona) - The market resumes its daily bounce after a strong plunge on Friday to retest support at the 1.5700 psychological level. The GBP/USD has reached 1.5751, so far, just as US factory orders data was released. However, the market is pulling back after disappointing data.

November US factory orders was revised lower from 0.0% to -0.3%, and the December figure came in at 1.8%, below the 2.2% consensus. The market will be trading ahead of Thursday's BoE policy meeting: “For the BoE this week we may have a more interesting meeting than in recent months, with some small expectations around restarting asset purchases”, wrote TD Securities analysts. “We think UK data has been decent enough to keep them on hold still, however, which could inspire a small GBP bounce”, they added.

“I think today the price may grow up a little bit to reach the level of 1.5865 and then move downwards to break the target at 1.5670”, wrote analyst Igor Sayadov, expecting then a return to 1.5865.
