GBP/USD gravitates around 1.5200

FXStreet (Córdoba) - GBP/USD continues to gravitate around the 1.5200 level after being rejected twice throughout the day from the 1.5240/45 resistance area.

GBP/USD scored its highest levels since BoE Super Thursday at 1.5245 but found sellers and pulled back. However, with the downside limited by 1.5170, the pair was confined to a sideways phase in a slim range. At time of writing, Cable is trading at 1.5208, virtually unchanged on the day.

Fed Chair Janet Yellen was speaking in Washington but refrained from making comments on monetary policy, which weighed on the greenback.
