The British Pound exchange rate for August, 2014 averaged 0.60 GBP to USD.
That's 1.1 basis points higher than the July, 2014 rate of 0.59, and 4.8 basis
points lower than the August, 2013 rate of 0.64.  The rise in the GBP/USD
exchange rate from July to August provides evidence that the short term trend
in GBP/USD is up. In other words, a strengthening of the US Dollar against the
British Pound in the short term. If that trend continues in the currency market,
we should see an average daily rate in September, 2014 that is close to 0.61.
