By FXstreet.com | August 18, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Guatemala) - GBP/USD is trading at 1.6731, up 0.24% on the day, having posted a daily high at 1.6739 and low at 1.6713.



Emmanuel Ng, FX Strategist at OCBC Bank explained that the pound may remain somewhat confused with Carney’s latest comments over the weekend at odds with the BOE Inflation Report earlier last week. “In the interim, the 1.6700 level and the 200-day MA (1.6671) may remain viable downside loci if market reaction to Carney’s comments are diluted beyond Monday."
