Since the outcome of the BOE policy decision a few minutes ago the GBP/USD has extended its move above 1.22, to as high as 1.2217 so far and that has been the catalyst to help the EUR/USD press higher.

Perhaps it has incited some systems based Euro buyers to join in too. The EUR/USD is just now trading at 1.0648 (1.0651 the high so far)
