GBP/USD pushed back from multi year highs

By FXstreet.com | June 19, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Guatemala) - Currently, GBP/USD is trading at 1.7038, up 0.26% on the day, having posted a daily high at 1.7065 and low at 1.6976.



GBP/USD has been an impressive performer, up to fresh multi year highs and despite a vaguely disappointing retail sales release. But, as Camilla Sutton, CFA, CMT, Chief FX Strategist at Scotiabank explained, the sudden hawkish stance by Governor Carney juxtaposed against a dovish Chair Yellen have provided the catalyst for a near‐term rally. She further added that technicals also warn of further near‐term upside, with the next level being 1.71. See chart.
