GBP/USD recovery capped by 1.5700

FXStreet (Córdoba) - GBP/USD extended losses into a third consecutive day Friday and printed yet another cycle low during the European session as the pound continues to suffer on the back of a more dovish BoE stance made evident at the latest Quarterly Inflation report (QIR).

GBP/USD broke below the 61.8% retracement of the broader 1.4812-1.7190 rise and the 1.57 mark to touch its lowest level since Sept 9 2013 at 1.5653. Even though, Cable managed to recover slightly from lows, the bounce was capped by the 20-hour SMA around 1.5695, confining the pair to a phase of consolidation.
