GBP/USD surrenders early gains

There are no scheduled events in the UK economy today, leaving the US docket as the main catalyst for the pair’s price action. “While the undertone for GBP remains weak, the downward momentum is not strong and any further down-move is expected to struggle near 1.6500. However, only a break back above 1.6585 would indicate that a temporary low is in place”, suggested Quek Ser Leang, Market Strategist at UOB Group.
