FXStreet (Moscow) - GBP/USD opened the day at 1.6860, posted 1.6872 session high, trading at 1,6866 at the moment.



Hope is still alive



As we warned yesterday, the market has been slow in reactions recently. It was with Mortgage Approvals, and it repeated with Construction PMI supporting the pound rise 30 pips higher by the end of the day. We need to see one more positive PMI report from service sector, and the market will believe in the British economy strength again. If so, the pound may go on rising with initial target at 1.6898 resistance.
