    FXStreet (Córdoba) - The British pound shrugged-off another round of dovish comments from BoE Governor, and rallied to 4-day highs above 1.4300 against the dollar.

    Oil prices recovery boosted investors sentiment during the New York session, helping GBP/USD to climb to its strongest level this week at 1.4334. The pair eased slightly from highs but it was last trading up 0.48% on the day at 1.4316.

    BoE Governor, Mark Carney, repeated on Tuesday that conditions are not in place for a UK rate hike and added that the bank could cut rates if needed.
