    GBP/USD slid back below 1.4500 and hit a fresh daily low of 1.4440 in recent dealings despite below expectations US consumer confidence data for February (90.7 vs 92.3 exp). At time of writing, the pair is trading at 1.0445, 0.20% below its opening price, having been as high as 1.4533 during the European session.
