FXStreet (Guatemala) - GBP/USD is trading at 1.6970, down -0.10% on the day, having posted a daily high at 1.7000 and low at 1.6961.



GBP/USD was a short lived rally that couldn’t get through the key 1.70 level on the release of the GDP Q2 for the UK. Camilla Sutton, CFA, CMT, Chief FX Strategist at Scotiabank noted that the UK Q2 GDP came in as expected +0.8% q/q and +3.1%y/y; retracing fully from recession. “An encouraging development and one that supports the BoE moving towards an interest rate hike; but moving gradual thereafter”.
