GBP/USD fades the spike to 1.5550

FXStreet (Edinburgh) - The buying interest remains unchanged around the pound on Thursday, lifting GBP/USD to daily tops in the mid-1.5500s albeit losing impetus afterwards.

GBP/USD firmer ahead of FOMC

Spot has extended its consolidative pattern around 1.5500 the figure seen overnight into the European session today, although it has managed to break above it amidst a better tone in the risk appetite trends.

In the data space, UK Retail Sales have disappointed market expectations during the last month, although traders have quickly shrugged off the poor results, leaving the buying interest pretty much intact around the pair.
