GBP/USD Technical Analysis: 1.30 mark back on sight ahead of UK Q3 GDP/macro data

   •  The pair remained under some heavy selling pressure for the second consecutive session on Friday and extended this week's retracement slide from three-week tops. 

   •  The post-FOMC slide through 100-hour SMA, and a subsequent break below 23.6% Fibo. level of the 1.2694-1.3175 recent up-move was seen as a key trigger for bearish traders. 

   •  Technical indicators on 4-hourly/daily charts have been losing positive momentum but have already drifted into oversold territory on the 1-hourly chart, warranting some consolidation.

   •  Hence, it would be prudent to wait for the passage of today's key data risk - the prelim UK Q3 GDP growth figures, before positioning for any further intraday depreciating move.
