In the UK todayhas been published information according to which, the business activity in the services sector rose in April with the fastest pace in 8 months. Thus, the service PMI was 59.5 against 58.6. This figure was the highest since August 2014. It is worth noting that investors are in no hurry to accumulate new positions and wait for the results of parliamentary elections in the country, which will be held tomorrow. Speculation about the future of monetary policy and the country's exit from the European Union will lead to increased volatility after the elections. Our medium-term outlook for the British pound remains negative.
