    FXStreet (Córdoba) - GBP/USD reversed most of its early gains and settled in a narrow range over the last hours, amid limited price action given the Martin Luther King Holiday.

    GBP/USD bounced from fresh 5 ½-year lows and reached a daily high of 1.4322 during the European session, but failed to maintain intraday gains and dropped more than half a cent toward the 1.4265 zone. At time of writing, the pair is trading at 1.4270, 0.16% above its opening price.

    The pound has been under broad pressure, having lost almost 10 cents against the greenback over the last month amid concerns of a slower recovery in the UK and uncertainty surrounding a possible Brexit.

    GBP/USD levels to watch

    On the downside, if GBP/USD breaks below 1.4246 (5 ½-year low Jan 18) next supports are seen at 1.4229 (monthly low May 2010) and then 1.4200 (psychological level). On the flip side, resistances could be found at 1.4322 (Jan 18 high), 1.4426 (Jan 15 high) and 1.4477 (10-day SMA).
