GBP/USD pares the biggest daily gains since April 2021, defending the 1.2600 threshold during Thursday’s Asian session, as cable traders await the Bank of England (BOE) monetary policy decision.

It’s worth noting, however, that the market’s expectations from the BOE are more than what the “Old Lady” has already announced, which in turn could trigger the GBP/USD pair’s pullback in case the British central bank disappoints bulls.
