Scotland uncertainty keeps British pound volatile LONDON: The pound recovered from a 10-month low against the dollar and a three-month trough against the euro on Wednesday as the market paused for breath after a week-long sell off on fears Scotland will vote for independence.Sterling got a slight boost from Bank of England chief Mark Carney, who reiterated in comments to lawmakers that the central bank was inching towards a tightening of monetary policy.But any uptick was likely to be temporary given ...
