Pound's Moves After UK Data May Be Limited

0735 GMT - Sterling's reaction to key U.K. economic data later this week may be modest as it's unlikely to change interest-rate expectations for the Bank of England, ING says. Jobs data will be published Tuesday followed by inflation data on Wednesday. The data probably won't be enough to alter market pricing that the BOE will deliver another 50 basis points rate rise in September, ING analyst Chris Turner says in a note. "That should mean EUR/GBP is able to hold below Friday's highs near 0.8485/90," he says. "Cable [GBP/USD], however, looks vulnerable to dollar strength and could quite easily make a return visit to 1.2000." GBP/USD drops 0.4% to 1.2091 and EUR/GBP rises 0.1% to 0.8463.
