    FXStreet (Córdoba) - GBP/USD picked up pace and broke to fresh 2-week highs as the dollar is facing another round of selling.

    GBP/USD broke above the 1.53 mark and stretched to a peak of 1.5335, but stalled a few pips shy of the 200-day SMA that stands around 1.5340. At time of writing, the pair is trading at 1.5320, recording a 0.56% gain on the day.

    The dollar has continued to weaken during the New York session as investors assess the repercussions of not-so-hawkish minutes from the FOMC issued Wednesday.
