GBP/USD Technical Analysis: Defend 200-hour SMA/1.2700 mark post-UK macro data

   •  The pair remained under some selling pressure for the second consecutive session, albeit managed to hold its neck above 200-hour SMA and the 1.2700 handle post-UK macro data dump.

   •  Given the recent failures to sustain/build on the momentum beyond the 1.2800 handle, a subsequent fall below the mentioned support should pave the way for a further near-term downfall. 

   •  Meanwhile, technical indicators on hourly charts have drifted into the negative territory and have also been losing positive momentum on the daily chart, adding credence to the bearish bias.

   •  Hence, a follow-through weakness towards 1.2655-50 intermediate zone en-route the 1.2610-1.2600 region, led by some fresh technical selling below the 1.2700 mark, looks a distinct possibility.
