    GBP/USD retraced completely intraday UK data-inspired gains and dropped to retest daily lows as the US dollar strengthened during the New York session following Fed Yellen testimony before the US Congress.

    GBP/USD was rejected by the 1.4580 zone and turned lower, losing more than 130 pips to a session low of 1.4447. However, the pair found support at the 200-hour SMA and bounced slightly to currently trade at 1.4480, just a few pips above its opening price.

    Meanwhile, Janet Yellen continues answering question in the Congress. Among main remarks, Fed Chair said she does not expect that the Fed will face the option to cut rates soon.
