    FXStreet (Córdoba) - After a 190-pip drop, GBP/USD managed to put a bottom and even recover slightly from lows amid some profit-taking.

    Pound weakened sharply across the board on Tuesday, following the release of low UK inflation and dovish comments from BoE officials. GBP/USD hit a low of 1.5199 but lacked follow-through below the psychological level and turned higher. At time of writing, the pair was trading at 1.5240, still 0.70% down on the day.
