GBP/USD vulnerable to lows

According to Karen Jones, an analyst at Commerzbank, “The GBP/USD witnessed a vicious sell off yesterday, which has eroded the 1.5091 support line and sold off to Fibonacci support at 1.5029 for now. This leaves the market vulnerable to the 1.5009 May low and then the 1.4832 March low.”
