    The British Pound has been one of my biggest problems in the last 4-5 weeks, but I am continuing to trade from the short side against the Dollar because the relative growth performances are not even close to favoring the GBP. We also have major rallies in the Pound so it is still a sell even from a technical perspective. We are getting into tricky territory in the GBP/USD however, and we will need to see some indications that the Fed will taper before we can expect any major runs lower.
