The shallow pullback in GBP/USD has meant that losses have been contained, and for now the $1.44 area, and the 100-day simple moving average nearby have acted to constrain further downside.
A push above $1.45 is needed to indicate the pullback has run its course, otherwise we wait to see whether the pair can break below $1.44, which would then open the way to $1.4305, towards the 50-day SMA.
