By FXstreet.com | Updated July 30, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Córdoba) - The GBP/USD managed to bounce from lows after dipping briefly below the 1.7100 mark at the beginning of the American session, as the pound remains under mild pressure ahead of the FOMC minutes and the BoE decision.



The GBP/USD is facing some corrective pressure this week after hitting a 6-year high of 1.7178 Friday supported by prospects the BoE will hike rates before the Fed. Investors will be closely watching today’s FOMC minutes and tomorrow’s BoE in the search of clues.
