FXStreet (Guatemala) - GBP/USD is trading at 1.6594, up 0.05% on the day, having posted a daily high at 1.6615 and low at 1.6576.



GBP/USD has come back off after a bounce through onto the 1.66 handle. Month end flows had been lifting the pair but with most of that probably done and out of the way, positing in the dollar is back onto the bid. In respect of data flows, these have mostly come from the US personal income and spending that arrived lower than the expectations at 0.2% and -0.1% respectively in July, while core PCE was unchanged at 1.5% y/y.
