FXstreet.com (Chicago) - GBP/USD regains the 1.61 zone and consolidates above 1.6110 after edging higher on official White House announcements.

What is new around the hood?

Latest political announcements are the not-so new US government shutdown that goes on and the not so surprising nomination to replace Bernanke for Yellen in the Fed. Ahead of data in the UK, the pair regains strength after a poor performance on slaking few days and the greenback’s mini-reaction after collective beating up that started last September 18th.
