UK Prelim GDP q/q | July 26, 2017 | Currency Trading

UK Prelim GDP q/q is a first GDP release for the Q2 of 2017 period, and since it is the first release for the quarter it is also the most likely to surprise the market, thus adding more volatility if we were to get a surprise.   I’d wait for the release before taking any […]
