    FXStreet (Córdoba) - GBP/USD found support after briefly falling below the 1.4300 level and reversed intraday losses at the beginning of the American session as the dollar faces mild pressure ahead of the FOMC decision.

    Following yesterday’s impressive rally, GBP/USD edged lower during the European session and bottomed out at 1.4283 before quickly bouncing back to the 1.4345 zone. At time of writing, the pair is trading at 1.4330, still 0.13% below its opening price.

    Main focus remains on the Federal Reserve policy statement during the American afternoon, where the FOMC is expected to keep policy unchanged and play down prospects of further rate hikes given recent turbulence in capital markets.
