U.K. factory-production activity output jumped in February as both industrial- and manufacturing- production beat expectations. Output growth was expected to slow, but the GBPUSD surged on the better-than-expected data. Industrial production output rose by 2.7 percent year-on-year in January, and Manufacturing production year-on-year reported at 3.8%.

The British Pound surged against the US Dollar after the data crossed the wires, but the move may reflect speculation of an imminent rise in the benchmark interest rate. Earlier in the week GBPUSD rebounded from the year open and Technical Strategist Jamie Saettele sees resistance at 1.6712 then 1.6767. Market Analyst David de Ferranti held a neutral bias on GBPUSD, but notes that candlestick analysis shows resistance at 1.6770.
