After closing the previous trading day at 1.2423, the British Pound went up to 1.25 only to drop back; still positive overall today, now trading at 1.2442.

This move comes while some more positive signs for the British Pound are out as United Kingdom Construction PMI came out at 51.6, better than analyst estimates of 51.1 and improving upon the previous reading of 51.1.

Meanwhile, United Kingdom Mortgage Rate (GBP) (May) released today at 08:50 UTC with a figure of 7.44, while the previous figure was 7.35.

Although up today, early price action saw GBP/USD dropping below its 50 day Simple Moving Average at 1.2429 — an early indicator that a new downward trend could be emerging.
