    FXStreet (Mumbai) - The GBP/USD sell-off regained pace after failing to strengthen on upbeat UK data and fell to a two-week low of 1.4916.

    Fourth consecutive session of losses

    This is the fourth straight day of losses for the GBP/USD pair. Sterling turned lower from the high of 1.5240 (Dec 11 high), which marked a continuation of lower highs formation seen on the daily chart since late August.

    The drop today has been triggered by a hawkish FOMC dot chart released yesterday, something the markets were not prepared for. The immediate focus is now on the US weekly jobless claims data, although the data may go unnoticed the way UK retail sales did.
