4:30am (NY Time) UK Manufacturing PMI Forecast 55.1 Previous 54.6
DEVIATION: 2.0 (BUY GBP 57.1 / SELL GBP 53.1)

The Trade Plan
We´re looking for a tradable deviation (or the difference between the forecast figure and the actual release figure) of 2.0. Since this is a leading indicator and its impact may hint the future trend of other economic indicators (such as inventory, employment, retail sales, etc..), the market usually reacts to this release with volatility if we get our deviation.
