    "We expect the current USD correction to be relatively short-lived."
    - Analyst at ANZ (based on Reuters) 

    Pair's Outlook
    Yesterday, the Cable retreated in spite of all the fundamental factors. GBP/USD tested the 2013 low, which stopped the pair from falling deeper. Moreover, Wednesday's gains were completely negated. The technical studies proved to be more reliable, and right now they are pointing south, suggesting a further slump. The Sterling can easily reach the 2013 low; however, the level at 1.48 is unlikely to be pierced. 

    Traders' Sentiment
    Market sentiment remains unchanged, with 46% of positions being long. At the same time, the gap between the buy and sell orders narrowed, as 47% (previously 40%) of commands in the 100-pip range are set to acquire the Pound.
