FXstreet.com (London) - GBP/USD broke through the recent highs of 1.6105 and 1.6120 and this may indicate a look towards the 1.62 handle.

GBP/USD has continued to grid higher, making slow but steady progress and if the 1.62 handle can be breached, this then opens up the recent 1.6260 for a test. The key driver has been the market’s initial reaction to the Bank of England’s hawkish November Inflation Report. However, Darren Williams, Senior European Economist at Alliance Bernstein is less convinced. “The Bank’s main message is that, even if growth rates remain strong, monetary policy is likely to remain highly accommodative until excess capacity in the UK has been eliminated”.
