By FXstreet.com | June 27, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Córdoba) - The GBP/USD wavered and remained little changed after data showed the UK gross domestic product fell slightly short of expectations in the first quarter.



The UK GDP grew 0.8% QoQ, matching market’s forecast but added 3.0% YoY missing the 3.1% rise expected. Meanwhile, the current account deficit contracted to £-18.495B, less than the anticipated £-17.5B.



The GBP/USD moved initially lower and hit a fresh low of 1.7014 before bouncing to the 1.7035 zone. At time of writing, the Cable is trading at the 1.7035 area, just a few pips above its opening price.
