Sterling fell back below 1.1700 against the Euro and 1.2500 against the US Dollar yesterday. This followed the lower than expected release of Manufacturing PMI data that dipped to 54.2 from 54.6.

 

The Euro suffered little change after the Eurozone’s unemployment rate fell to 9.5% in February - the lowest since 2009.

 

US ISM Manufacturing PMI slowed less than forecast. The index fell from 57.7 to 57.2.

 

The Reserve Bank of Australia decision to keep interest rates on hold at 1.5% caused the Australian Dollar to weaken.
