GBP/USD: Sterling edged lower against the dollar on Thursday, hovering near a 35-year low touched last week against the greenback as investors fret about the economic outlook and continue to favour the U.S. currency.

Traders will be watching U.S. retail sales and industrial production data later in the day for further direction. Immediate resistance can be seen at 0.9627(5DMA), an upside break can trigger rise towards 0.9667 (23.6% fib).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 0.9576 (38.2% fib), a break below could take the pair towards 0.9499 (50% fib).
