    EUR/GBP lower on GBP-buying

    Today’s recovery of the sterling has been weighing on the cross since early in the Asian session, dragging it from recent highs around the mid-0.7500s. In addition, very auspicious Chinese trade figures have boosted the riskier assets in detriment of the single currency, which continues to trade on the defensive so far.

    The are no scheduled releases in the UK economy today, while Industrial Production figures in the euro region and the ECB’s Non-monetary policy meeting will keep investors busy during the European morning.
