    Offered tone around USD gathered traction following dismal US retail sales figure, helping the GBP/USD pair recover from three-day low of 1.4146.

    Back above 23.6% Fibo

    The spot now trades above 1.4164 (23.6% of 1.5230-1.3835). US retail sales not only took a hit in February, but were also weak in January as opposed to an initially reported rise of 0.2%. The data helped Cable to move off lows.

    However, Brexit fears made a comeback today and that is limiting the recovery in the pair around 1.4190 levels. The focus now is on the overall market sentiment.

    A break above immediate hurdle at 1.4207 (38.2% of 1.3835-1.4463) would open doors for rise towards resistance at 1.4270 (5-DMA) and 1.4303 (50-DMA). On the other hand, violation at immediate support of 1.4164 (23.6% of 1.5230-1.3835) would open doors for re-test of daily low of 1.4146, under which spot could drop to 1.41 handle.
