    GBP jumping on strong employment data. UK Feb. Employment Change (3M/3M) at a robust +239k vs. +90k expected and +105k in Jan. and the Unemployment Rate drops to 6.9% vs. 7.1% expected and 7.2% in Jan. GBP jumping on this.

EURGBP is dropping to new local lows and GBPUSD is within striking distance of the 1.6820 cycle highs.

    March Jobless Claims Change was out at -30.4k vs. -30k expected and -37k in Feb.

This is fair enough, but there is cause for relief and celebration only for those who take their economics from a technocratic perspective.

    EURGBP: Yesterday we closed below 0.8244 - the daily ichi cloud base. A 2nd close below would target 0,8200/10.
