The Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS) Construction Purchasing Manager's Index (PMI) measures the activity level of purchasing managers in the construction industry. A reading above 50 indicates expansion in the construction industry; a reading below indicates contraction. It gives an indication about the health of the construction section in the UK. Traders watch these surveys closely as purchasing managers usually have early access to data about their company’s performance, which can be a leading indicator of overall economic performance.

A higher than expected reading should be taken as positive/bullish for the GBP, while a lower than expected reading should be taken as negative/bearish for the GBP.

DXY is at a record high level since the past 52 weeks ... USD is very very strong so GBP/USD is going down ... really simple if you put all the pieces together (News are just 1 piece)

Ok you're right, but at 10,00 I expected that the positive news about PMI should have been an aid against the fall . But it was completely ignored by the market, indeed produced the opposite effect. That was unexpected. Isn't it?

Usually news are speculated upon before their release - that is when the real money is made from trading on news. You are correct, it should have eased the fall a bit and it probably did. I opened a short position prior the PMI entirely based on the DXY and strong USD and geopolitical events and almost closed my position after the PMI came out... I am just as surprised as you that it had such a minor effect on the GBPUSD. I just happened to be on the lucky side of things this time :)
