GBP/USD remains weaker

Increasing safe haven inflows due to geopolitical tensions around Syria and the readiness of the US to strike have been behind the USD rally as of late, collaborating in the downside despite the recently less dovish tone from Carney and the better UK fundamentals. Analysts at RBS assessed “it would appear that further positive data surprises will be harder to come by from now on… This suggests that GBP may also start to find it harder yards in the coming weeks, particularly with a lighter data calendar and the pair having failed to breach topside resistance around 1.5700/1.5750”.
