Sterling has been blasted lower after BoE governor Carney cast doubt on a previously pretty-much-expected UK May rate hike. The EU's rejection of Britain's latest Brexit-Irish border plan only served to deepen the rot.

FX Levels for major pairs as GBPUSD hits 30-year lows. Before we discuss the further market action here, it is important to note that the authorities are hardly going to sit idly by and watch the market sort things out for itself after the shock of this Brexit vote. Judging purely from the price action in the likes of USDJPY (and not on any other source), for example, it appears intervention may already be here in the form of a floor somewhere near 100.00

With that caveat, brief thoughts on "next levels" of interest in major pairs:
GBPUSD - 1.3500 was a critical level stretching back to the financial crisis. From here, only round levels to go by - 1.3000, 1.2500, etc... The 1985 low was 1.0525.
EURGBP - minor Fibo at 0.8372, otherwiseno real levels until 0.8815
EURUSD - a major Fibo at 1.0940 tested overnight - 1.1000 seems to be attracting the price action
USDJPY - we had an overnight low at 99.00, but watch charts for price action indicating whether we have a hard floor nera 100.00
