By FXstreet.com | Updated July 30, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Guatemala) - GBP/USD is trading at 1.7153, down -0.07% on the day, having posted a daily high at 1.7170 and low at 1.7101.



Valeria Bednarik, chief analyst at FXStreet explained that the pound was under mild pressure since early European opening, hit by worse than expected UK Services PMI, down to 57.7. However, she suggested that “GBP self strength will be hard to defy and further gains should be expected, and dips are seen as buying opportunities rather than possible tops…At this point, some upward acceleration above 1.7160 is required to confirm a continuation rally, eyeing levels above 1.7200 for the upcoming sessions”.
