    Eyes UK wage growth data

    The data due today in the US is expected to show the wage growth slowed down significantly in December. This would add credence to Carney’s comments yesterday about moderating wages. Meanwhile, the employment numbers are seen largely unchanged.

    The common currency traders would also keep an eye on the European equities, which if follow Asian equities lower could help EUR gains further ground against the GBP.
