GBP/USD clings to daily gains

FXStreet (Córdoba) - GBP/USD rose to fresh daily highs during the New York session, as the dollar weakened following softer-than-expected ISM manufacturing data, but found support and retreated somewhat.

GBP/USD managed to recover from a 5-month low of 1.5106 struck earlier on the day and climbed to a peak of 1.5179 before finding resistance. However, the pullback was contained by the 1.5145 area. At time of writing, the pair is trading at 1.5155, still 0.20% above its opening price.

All eyes now turn to the US nonfarm payrolls report due on Friday for catalysts to drive FX market.
