    FXStreet (Córdoba) - GBP/USD broke above the 38.2% retracement of its December-January fall and reached fresh 3-week highs as the greenback continues to weaken across the board.

    GBP/USD resumed its recovery on Wednesday and it has climbed more than 200 pips to a high of 1.4595 before losing momentum. At time of writing, the pair is trading at 1.4550, still up 1.0% on the day.

    Dollar sell-off was ignited by Fed’s Dudley dovish comments, which offset a positive US ADP report. Later, a disappointing ISM services PMI (53.5 vs 55.1 exp) added to USD woes.
