GBP/USD trades slightly lower near Europe, consolidating in upper 1.45. Pair is feeling confidence this morning amid broad based US dollar weakness and growing anti-Brexit support. However, traders are expecting the UK prelim GDP report due to be published in the European session. Markets are expecting the GDP growth rate to have slow, on the back of sentiments based on Brexit poll results. After the UK data, the main event for the major is expected to be the FOMC decision, following the conclusion of the two-day policy meeting that started on Tuesday. The pair is currently trading at 1.4573 with current support and resistance levels located at 1.4493 and 1.4729.

But the greenback’s gains were limited as investors remained cautious ahead of the Federal Reserve’s policy statement, due later today amid ongoing uncertainty over the pace and timing of future rate hikes. Now pair trades under the bearish pressure still losing its positions at 0.7611, with its support and resistance levels located at 0.7597 and 0.7834

After disappointing data from New Zealand, Kiwi followed its Australian colleague and failed handling 0.69 spot dropping nearly 50 pips.
