FXStreet (Córdoba) - The GBP/USD posted the fifth weekly gain in a row and the highest close since October 2008. The Pound was among the best performers and continued to rally against the US dollar.



On Friday the pair printed a fresh multi-year high at 1.7179 but then pulled back and ended hovering around 1.7155, with a weekly gain of more than a hundred pips.
