That said, the 0.8650 region remains a big obstacle to overcome.

  • GPB Looks Cheap - But For Good Reason

    I'm tempted to look at a higher time frame chart of GBP/USD and say it looks cheap. UK inflation is my top concern for the British pound. Furthermore, the Bank of England looks for the time being less inclined than the Fed to do something about inflation.
