FXStreet (Guatemala) - GBP/USD is trading at 1.6869, up 0.04% on the day, having posted a daily high at 1.6891 and low at 1.6845.



GBP/USD was driven higher with stronger than expected services PMI but lost out to Moody’s decision to change the UK banking system’s outlook from stable to negative. We now look ahead to the BoE, however, Camilla Sutton, CFA, CMT, Chief FX Strategist at Scotiabank explained that Thursday’s BoE decision is widely expected to prove a non‐event. She went onto say that they hold a year end GBP target of 1.72, expecting GBP to shift higher later this quarter as the BoE first interest rate hike draws closer."
