    The GBP/USD pair trades -0.20% lower at 1.4354, having retested session lows struck at 1.4336 in early Europe. The cable came under renewed selling pressure in the recent dealing, after the prices failed to take-out 1.4380-85 resistance zone, while finds support near 1.4335-4401 levels amid rallying European stocks.

    The GBP/USD pair remains weak mainly in response to the renewed sell-off seen in the oil prices, which keeps the bulls away from taking the advantage from the prevalent risk-on market profile. Meanwhile, the US oil is down -1.90%, while Brent is losing -1.44%.

    Amid a lack of fundamental triggers this session, attentions shifts towards Tuesday’s economic calendar, with the US retail sales and PPI data expected to provide fresh impetus ahead of the much awaited FOMC decision on Wednesday.
