By FXstreet.com | Updated July 30, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Córdoba) - The rejection of the GBP/USD from the 1.7165 area has contained at the beginning of the New York session just a few pips before hitting the 1.7100 psychological mark.



The GBP/USD failed to sustain gains as investors seemed unwilling to buy the GBP before the BoE decision and the pair continued to fall after the bank offered no surprises. The Cable bottomed out at 1.7103 and with the subsequent bounce capped by the 1.7130, it was confined to a phase of consolidation. At time of writing, the GBP/USD is trading at 1.7110, 0.26% below its opening price.
