FXStreet (Mumbai) - The sharp spike in the USD following a stellar Non-farm payrolls report pushed the GBP/USD pair to 1.5037; its lowest since April 24th. USD gains as 2-yr yield spikes The US dollar strengthened across the board as the 2-yr treasury yield in the US rose to a high of 0.958%. The yield is known to mimic short-term interest rate expectations. A strong NFP report released today cemented the December rate hike bets, which pushed Sterling lower. At the moment, the pair is trading near 1.5045 levels with no sign of a respite. The cable was already one of the weakest major currencies ahead of the report; courtesy of the dovish BOE and weak UK data.
