On the chart, buyers are testing the 1.3700 level. We have not yet seen a strong reaction. With a very high probability, we can expect a breakdown of this mark and the continuation of the upward movement. But he did not rule out the possibility of tightening restrictions if the situation deteriorates again. Johnson said specialists are constantly monitoring the situation.
There is no important news in the UK economic calendar today. In the US, it is worth paying attention to the publication of weekly statistics on the labor market and the speech of the head of the Fed, Jerome Powell.
