EURGBP orders 30 Nov

Currently 0.8520 trying to make its mind up Good rally from yesterday's 0.8467 lows so sell interest understandable up here despite any potential additional month-end demand from BUBA further to the spike we saw on . Can't rule out that they will have placed bids lower down in that dip so maybe all done now but rule nothing out.
