Today was published a large block of important macroeconomic data on the labor market in the UK, which has led to the end of growth of prices of the British currency. Thus, the unemployment rate unexpectedly rose in May by 0.1% to 5.6%, against 5.5% forecasted by analysts. The number of unemployed in the UK rose by 7.0 thousand in June against the expected decline of 8.9 thousand. The data on the acceleration of growth of average wages in the country at 3.2% in May against 2.7% in April. The main influence on the course of trading in the coming days will have the dynamics of the US dollar after a speech by the Fed and the dynamics of the euro against the background of a vote in the Greek parliament on austerity measures. Our medium-term outlook remains negative.
