UK Services Purchasing Manager Index will be released today at 4:28am (NY Time) and it’s expected to be at 58, and similarly to the Manufacturing PMI, GBP should react accordingly if we get a strong surprise today.
4:28am (NY Time) UK Services PMI Forecast 58.0 Previous 58.3
The Services PMI is tradable with a minimum deviation of 2.5 between the forecast and the actual release. If we get at least 60.5 or better, we could see some demand in the GBP and we will consider BUYING GBP against weaker currencies. If we get a 55.5 or lower, GBP could weaken and we should look to SELL GBP against stronger currencies.

I’d recommend to use the Recommended Pairs from above as they are based on my CSM, which should provide the best combination of currency pairs to trade based on better/worse news… of course, you can also trade the default pair: GBPUSD.
