Fundamental GBP/USD analysis for June 17 Today, the British sterling does not show visible price fluctuations paired with the US dollar, as market participants are still analyzing the released statistics. In particular, the May consumer price index in the country was 0.5% year on year versus the April value of 0.8% y/y. The producer price index in May rose 0.3% mom after a 5.5% decline in April. Core inflation in the UK was recorded at 1.2% y/y – lower than it was a month earlier, and weaker than expected. At the same time, the retail price index in the country amounted to only 1.0% y/y in May against the April level of 1.5%. Such dynamics fully corresponds to the conditions when neither business nor consumers are active in the country. Fresh statistics did not reflect either a positive or a clear negative, so the pair GBP/USD will continue to fluctuate near the level of 1.2560 during the day.
