Pound Sterling Price News and Forecast: GBP/USD hangs near session lows, around mid-1.4100s


GBP/USD: Break above 1.4203 to clear the way for a retest of key highs at 1.4238/49 – Credit Suisse

GBP/USD weakness has again been well supported. Above 1.4203, cable can ease the threat of a fresh setback for a retest of the 1.4238/49 highs, analysts at Credit Suisse report.
