Hush! GBP/USD showing first steps up

FXStreet (Moscow) - GBP/USD shows very shy steps up posting 1.6151 session high.

Scotland to blame

Yesterday’s quite hawkish comments from Carney on possible hike in Spring, and more optimistic economic data ahead, failed to trigger the recovery of the pound. If it were not for the Scottish saga, it would definitely start a broad-based rally of the pair. This entire behaviour means the pound may stay under pressure up until September, 18 referendum. However, if the No-voters number dominate, the surge of the pair may be impressive.
