FXStreet (Córdoba) - The GBP/USD pulled back further during the American session and bottomed at 1.7000. Currently trades at 1.7010/15, down 0.16% for the day, rebounding and giving some signs of stabilization after moving with a downside bias since European hours.

The main events next week for the Pound will be on Thursday with the presentation of the Financial Stability Report and on Friday with GDP data from the United Kingdom.
