Pound Sags After Less Hawkish BOE, G3 Currencies Adrift 

The British pound nursed losses on Wednesday after comments from the Bank of England governor cooled expectations for an interest rate hike this year, while its G3 counterparts drifted in well-worn ranges.
Surprisingly less hawkish comments from BoE Governor Mark Carney saw the pound dip to a near one-week low of $1.6966, pulling away from a 5-1/2 year peak of $1.7064 set last Wednesday. Carney said Britain’s economy still has plenty of slack to work through and that financial markets underestimate how much uncertainty there is in the economy.
