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.

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.
