UK retail sales and then the BoE meeting are on the agenda for today, and for now these are helping prevent further downside in GBP/USD.
If the pair can move back above $1.42 then we may have seen a short-term bottom, although with the referendum now a week away the downside risk should not be underestimated.
A close below $1.41 leaves the pair on course for a test of the February low at $1.38. Upside targets lie at $1.43 and then $1.45.
