    FXStreet (Mumbai) - The GBP/USD pair recovered off its low of 1.5166, but stays below its hourly 200-MA located at 1.5175 levels.

    Awaits UK data

    The Sterling traders await the UK monthly CPI figure, which could show the core inflation steadies, while the headline figure rebounded in the positive territory. As per latest BOE forecasts, the inflation is likely to remain low and faces downside risks.

    Later in the day, the US CPI figure would be watched out by traders, although it could turn out to be non-event for the markets since the December liftoff is widely considered as a done deal.
