    GBP/USD has fallen from high of 1.4396 down to 1.4189 lows through the 50 dma at 1.4282.

    GBP/USD looks soft and prone to more weakness near-term. Further weighing on the downside, Moody was characterizing the UK budget as “credit negative” and one large bond fund manager was reporting sighting that the next BoE move might be a rate cut, according to analysts at Scotiabank.

GBPUSD looks at risk of pushing lower to test key support at 1.4130/50 in the next few days."
