GBP/USD Technical Analysis: Intraday positive momentum stalls near 200-hour SMA

   •  The intraday positive momentum faced rejection at 200-hour SMA, with the pair quickly retreating over 25-30 pips from an intraday high level of 1.2687.

   •  Technical indicators on the daily chart are yet to catch up with the latest leg of a positive move and seemed to be the only factor capping additional gains.

   •  Meanwhile, oscillators on the 1-hourly chart have also started losing positive momentum but have still managed to hold in the bullish territory.

   •  Hence, it would be prudent to wait for a strong follow-through buying beyond 200-hour SMA before positioning for any further near-term up-move.
