FXStreet (Córdoba) - The GBP/USD is back to square one at the beginning of the american session, after the latest upside attempt was capped by the 1.7050 area.



The Cable pulled back from highs, giving up nearly half a cent, but found support at the 100-hour SMA just ahead of hitting the 1.7000 psychological level. At time of writing, the GBP/USD is trading at 1.7010, virtually unchanged on the day.



From a wider perspective, the GBP/USD remains underpinned by divergent BoE and Fed policy stances, having reached a nearly 6-year peak of 1.7062 last Thursday.
