    FXStreet (Córdoba) - Following a short-lived upside attempt, GBP/USD turned lower and fell sharply toward fresh daily lows as the greenback picked up pace across the board.

    After retesting highs at 1.5183, a stronger dollar dragged GBP/USD below the 10-day SMA to a low of 1.5103 in a matter of minutes. However, overall the pair continues to trade within its recent range as investors await the Federal Reserve verdict tomorrow. At time of writing, GBP/USD is trading at 1.5106, still down 0.22% on the day
