FXStreet (Córdoba) - The GBP/USD edged slightly lower but remained within its daily range following a series of upbeat US data.



The US annualized GDP rose 4.2% in Q2 above the 3.9% of consensus and the 4.0% anticipated reading. Meanwhile, initial jobless claims edged a tad lower to 298K vs 300K expected in the week ended Aug 24.
