    FXStreet (Mumbai) - The GBP/USD ran into offers ran into offers above the 10-DMA and now trades with losses around 1.4250 levels.

    Eyes hourly 50-MA

    The spot is eyeing the hourly 50-MA at 1.4242 levels. The three-day corrective rally in the British Pound stalled as the oil prices dropped in Europe, pushing the European stock markets lower. Consequently, Sterling and other risk currencies turned negative.

    The pair remains at the mercy of the overall market sentiment. The UK CBI total trends survey figure may receive little attention from the markets if the moderate risk aversion seen now worsens ahead in the day.
