FXStreet (Moscow) - GBP/USD is creeping higher at the start of the European session as traders a mulling over Mark Carney’s comments; 1.7000 resistance is in focus.

MPC minutes will clear things out

Now that Carney let the cat out of the bag, the looming MPC minutes from the recent BOE meeting may become the one that will dot all the “i”s, as there are some mild expectations for the divergence within the MPC camp. There has been no divergence in votes on interest rate policy since July 2011, and hardly will it be in coming months, however, the diverging views and comments are quite possible. And this may be enough to push the pair higher again with initial target at 1.7000 resistance level.
