    GBP/USD has been trading in a recovery of late, but met keen supply at crazy heights given the magnitude of last week's rally.

    GBP/USD is located around the 1.44 handle and supply knocked the wind out of the bulls at 1.4513 after the strongest daily recovery since October 13th 2015. While the greenback has been set back on the FOMC, there are increased risks to sterling on the build-up to the referendum. BoE's Forbes said this earlier today in fact.

    "Prolonged heightened uncertainty could push up UK's cost to borrow in sterling," explained the MPC member, meaning more downside to follow for sterling. The political upheaval is a reason to remain short of the pound, but while markets reflect on the FOMC, the dollar is also in the firing line.
