FXStreet (Córdoba) - The GBP/USD picked up momentum during the New York session and rose to fresh daily highs above 1.6800.



The Cable took a U-turn after hitting a fresh 2-month low of 1.6756 during the European trade and reversed daily losses rising more than half a cent to a high of 1.6808. With no much data scheduled for today, focus now turns to UK jobs data and the Bank of England Quarterly Inflation report to be released tomorrow as investors look for clues about the timing of a rate hike in the UK.
