FXstreet.com (Córdoba) - The GBP/USD extended gains to fresh 7-month highs at the beginning of the American session amid headlines White House has not made decision about Fed Chairman and the rally was further fueled by worse-than-expected US retail sales data.

August retail sales grew 0.2%, missing expectations of a 0.4% increase, weighing on the greenback across the board. GBP/USD broke above yesterday’s peak and rallied to its highest level since early February at 1.5859 in recent dealings. At time of writing, GBP/USD is trading at the 1.5850 zone, 0.3% above its opening price.
