Trade GBP on the crucial economic event
British CPI reading will be out at 11:30 MT time on October 17.

Last time the data was released on September 19. It outperformed the forecast (2.7% vs 2.4%). As a result, the GBP/USD pair rose significantly from 1.3097 to 1.3213.

• If CPI is weaker than expected, the GBP will fall.
