GBP/USD has new record highs on its mind

By FXstreet.com | June 19, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Moscow) - GBP/USD opened the day at 1.7039, and resumed the rise again reaching 1.7054 by the moment.



Bullish position

The purposeful movement above the August, 2009 high only supports the medium/long-term bullish position of the pound. Even weaker than expected UK Retail Sales data were not able to stop the move higher – after a period of hesitation the pair broke above 1.70, posted new high at 1.7062 not seen from October, 2008. Despite the looming weekend, and possibility of profit-taking, the further move up with initial target at 1.7077 resistance is not ruled out.



What are today’s key GBP/USD levels?
