FXStreet (Córdoba) - The GBP/USD has managed to extend its recovery during the European session, filling the downward opening gap in the process.



The GBP/USD has been in slowly moving away from fresh 5-month lows scored at the opening, having regained the 50-hour SMA and moving closer to the 1.6600 zone. At time of writing, the Cable is trading at the 1.6590 zone, 0.10% above its opening price.
