Monday’s sell off in the Pound has stabilized and the Pound Euro (GBP/EUR) exchange rate is edging a few pipis higher at €1.1080.

The Euro is supported by weak demand for the US Dollar ahead of the Georgia Senate runoff later today.
German retail sales and unemployment data headline the economic calendar.
