    FXStreet (Córdoba) - GBP/USD dropped to fresh daily lows during the American session, with the pound as one of the worst performers in the FX market.

    GBP/USD made an attempt to the upside but it found resistance at the 1.4925 zone and pulled back, sliding to a fresh low of 1.4875 in recent dealings. At time of writing, the pair is trading at 1.4880, down 0.16% on the day, and not far from an 8-month low of 1.4863 struck last week.

    The Sterling is also on the defensive against the euro and the yen, with EUR/GBP at 2-month highs above 0.7300 and GBP/JPY testing the 180.00 support area and sliding toward the 100-week SMA.
