FXstreet.com (Córdoba) - The GBP/USD slumped to fresh lows at the beginning of the New York session after solid US data gave the greenback a boost.

The NY Empire State manufacturing index soared to its highest in 20 months in January, signaling strong expansion in the sector, while December's producer price index grew in line with expectations. The GBP/USD accelerated lower, breaking decisively below the 1.6400/1.6375 area slipping to a low of 1.6327, last seen Dec 24 2013.
