FXStreet (Guatemala) - GBP/USD is trading at 1.7130, down -0.01% on the day, having posted a daily high at 1.7148 and low at 1.7094.
GBP/USD is relaxing back onto the support here ahead of the FOMC minutes. Then, tomorrow, we will get the BoE. However, this may not be much of an event and Camilla Sutton, CFA, CMT, Chief FX Strategist at Scotiabank explained,"We do not expect any surprises at tomorrow’s BoE meeting, with both interest rates and the asset purchase program on hold at 0.5% and £375bn respectively. Next week’s CPI release and slew of data is the next hurdle for GBP. We expect near‐term upside but an easing into year‐end; holding a Q414 target of 1.70."
