FXstreet.com (Córdoba) - An already firm pound extended gains to fresh weekly highs against the dollar after the release of the BoE minutes and better than expected UK claimant count.

The GBP/USD broke above the 10-day SMA and rose to a high of 1.6364 after BoE minutes showed the MPC voted unanimously to keep its policy unchanged while October claimant count fell by 36,700 and the unemployment rate declined to 7.4% versus 7.6% expected. The GBP/USD is currently trading at the 1.6350 zone, recording a 0.6% gain on the day ahead of the key FOMC decision.
