GBP/USD fails to sustain gains

By FXstreet.com | July 14, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Córdoba) - The GBP/USD picked up momentum and spiked to fresh daily highs helped by broad risk appetite and M&A news.



The GBP/USD saw a quick run toward a high of 1.7143 in a bout of dollar selling, but quickly lost steam and erased gains. At time of writing, the GBP/USD is trading at the 1.7120 area, virtually unchanged since opening.



However, the GBP/USD is likely to remain supported in the longer term as the economic outlook remains positive in the UK and amid prospects the BoE would hike rates before the Fed.
