GBP/USD slid below 1.64... again

FXStreet (Moscow) - GBP/USD made a swift move below 1.64, currently trading at 1.6370 without particular reason.

When referendum is over

The pair had problems in Asia settling above 1.65. It spent there just a couple of hours, and slid to 1.6460 area on news about some Scottish towns voting for independence. Now, the downward movement resumed with new strength sending the pair below 1.64 to current 1.6370 area. And we wonder, if there are any news from Scotland we don’t know about. Probably, it was a reaction to general referendum results showing is was a close call, and almost 45% of the Scotts are not happy staying the part of the UK.
