The GBP / USD pair is trying to recover the losses of the previous trading day on Tuesday. The growth of the currency pair today is provided primarily due to the weakening of the dollar across the entire spectrum of the market. Since the beginning of the day, the dollar index has dropped by more than 0.23%. Thus, investors are reacting to the decision of the House of Representatives to approve Trump's initiative to increase stimulus payments to Americans to $ 2,000. The bill has been submitted to the Senate.
