FXStreet (Edinburgh) - The offered tone around the sterling keeps gaining traction on Wednesday, now dragging GBP/USD to fresh lows in the 1.5290 area.

GBP/USD in 2-week lows, breaks below 200d-sma

The pair is extending its deep correction lower from last week’s tops around the key resistance area at 1.5660/70, currently navigating levels last seen in early September and putting further distance from the recently broken 1.5350 area, where sits the key 200-day sma.

Spot is also deriving selling pressure via the upbeat tone around EUR/GBP despite the generalized softer results from German and EMU PMIs during the current month. Ahead in the session, BoE’s Deputy Governor Ben Broadbent will give a speech on the UK labour market.
