GBP/USD: Revisiting Tuesday’s low

FXStreet (Mumbai) - The GBP/USD is nearing the Thursday’s low of 1.5248 as the bid tone on the USD stays intact amid the rise in December rate hike probability.

Rejected at 1.5272

A technical recovery in Asia quickly ran out of steam around 1.5272 levels. The USD spiked across the board in the NY session and stays on a positive footing as the Fed is no longer worried about the global issues and has kept the doors open for a rate hike in December.

Ahead in the day, the UK net consumer credit would be watched out by traders. Next on cards would be the US preliminary Q3 GDP figures.
