    A mixed batch of UK labor market data and the uptick in the European stocks pushed the EUR/GBP below 0.78, where it trades largely unchanged on the day around 0.7790 levels.

    Focus on stocks

    Sterling regained poise following a knee jerk reaction to the subdued UK wage growth figures. Meanwhile, the European stocks, up more than 1%, are keeping the EUR under pressure.

    Consequently, the cross fell below 0.78 after a having clocked a post UK data high of 0.7813. Ahead of the Fed minutes, the cross remains at the mercy of the action in the European and US stock markets.
