GBP/USD hits fresh 14-month low

FXStreet (Córdoba) - Following a strong sell-off Wednesday, GBP/USD managed to stabilize in a slim range over the last hours before stretching to a fresh cycle low during the European trade.

GBP/USD dipped below 1.5760 and made a fresh 14-month low of 1.5752 in recent dealings. Pound came under pressure after the BoE QIR showed the bank cut growth and inflation forecasts, leading investors to delay expectations for a first hike in interest rates.
