    EUR/GBP is currently consolidated in a trend-less markets today as we head into a long weekend for most around the world.

    The pound got some profit taking support yesterday and the greenback is a mixed bag ahead of a key week next week. This week, we had poor durable goods but today a better than expected GDP result was a positive surprise. We will now look ahead to PCE data on Monday and the nonfarm payrolls next Friday ahead of April's FOMC meeting, all of which will be driving sentiment in the greenback through the euro and sterling.

    However, for the cross, we are in an environment where the UK referendum on its EU membership is a strong driving force and the pound is most vulnerable in the resulting threat of ‘Brexit', stalling the downside recovery in the cross.
