FXStreet (Córdoba) - The GBP/USD inched higher during the Asian session and hit a fresh multi-year high but reversed direction during the European trading to finally settle nearly flat as US markets are closed on holiday.

At time of writing, the GBP/USD is trading at 1.7145, a few pip below its opening price, but on track to print its fifth weekly gain in a row, this time of 0.71%.
