FXStreet (Córdoba) - After the latest upside attempt was capped by the 1.7050 area, the GBP/USD entered a consolidation phase which wasn't interrupted even after the release of the UK GDP figures.



The GBP/USD pulled back from highs and erased intraday gains amid new comments on BBC radio from BoE Carney, who said interest rates could rise this year or next. The Cable has spent the last hours in a narrow range and it is currently at 1.7020, virtually unchanged on the day. However, the GBP/USD remains on track for a small gain and with its 5-year peak of 1.7062 at sight.
