By FXstreet.com | Updated July 30, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Córdoba) - After bottoming out at 1.6951 Wednesday on the back of Carney’s dovish remarks, the GBP/USD turned higher and staged a 100-pip recovery over the last 2 days, although the advance has been capped by the 1.7050 zone so far.



The Cable rose 100 pips during the second half of the weak and reached a fresh 1-week high of 1.7050 Friday. However, sellers reappeared at that level, halting the GBP advance a few pips shy of its 6-year peak scored last week at 1.7062. The GBP/USD has pulled back from daily highs and it trades nearly flat on the day at the 1.7025 zone ahead of the UK GDP release.
