Sterling weakens as investors fret over Carney's message, yen firm LONDON: Sterling stayed under pressure for a second day on Wednesday, as investors cut favourable bets on the currency after Bank of England governor cooled expectations of an interest rate hike later this year.The euro was the main beneficiary of the pound's losses.
