GBP/USD managed to reverse intraday losses and turned positive during the New York session as the greenback weakened versus most competitors.
Disappointing Chicago PMI and pending home sales data weighed on the dollar, sending GBP/USD to a session peak of 1.3945, before the 100-hour SMA offered resistance. At time of writing, the pair is at 1.3905, up 0.23% on the day.
