A number of economic reports are scheduled for release today, one of which is the data on US GDP. At the same time, the European Central Bank will announce its decision on interest rates, which is expected to lead to a surge in volatility in the EUR / USD pair. If the ECB softens its monetary policy, the pressure on the euro will increase.

Since there are no economic reports scheduled for release today, the attention of traders will be shifted on the next round of negotiations between the UK and the EU over the long-disputed post-Brexit trade deal. Good news about it will lead to a new wave of growth on the British pound, whereas a bad news could lead to another decline in the GBP / USD pair.
