$GBPUSD Technical outlook and News Events on 12.16.2015

We have 2 important news events for British Pound on Wednesday 12.16.2015

-Average Earnings Index at 9:30 AM GMT (UK Time)

-Claimant Count Change at 9:30 AM GMT (UK Time)

Both news events could bring some volatility into GBP pairs on Wednesday morning, however $GBPUSD will be more affected by the $USDX reaction on the FOMC events at evening  7:00 PM GMT (UK Time) / 2:00 PM EST

It’s well known fact that Technical Analysis is always a step ahead of Fundamental Events. We believe there is no way to make good trade decisions based on Fundamentals, however these events brings volatility to the market so we should be aware of them.
