FXStreet (Córdoba) - The GBP/USD trades effectively unchanged on the day following another failed attempt to break above the 1.6610 resistance area.

Ahead of the long weekend in the US, the GBP/USD is trading at the 1.6585 area, flat on the day, but still on track for a mild weekly gain following 7 weeks of losses.
