Well, this news is positive for a moment for market volatility but actually this is not a positive news at all to rise up GBP/USD.

Very hot news! Very hot news! Very hot news! The price might go down towards 1.62 in a few days. Immediate target level is 1.65530. No upside is currently seen at all. So I think one can easily go with sell as much as possible.
