    GBP/USD has continued to move lower at the beginning of the New York session, leaving several support levels behind, as the pound continues to underperform across the board.

    GBP/USD weakened broadly and has lost more than 200 pips over the last hours, sliding toward a low of 1.4275 in recent dealings. The pound was weighed by disappointing UK retail sales data and a resumption of risk aversion.

    At time of writing, GBP/USD was trading at 1.4296, down 0.93% on the day, having been as high as 1.4515 at one stage.
