GBP/USD Technical Analysis: Headed back towards challenging 200-hour SMA stiff resistance

   •  The pair finally broke out of its Asian session consolidation phase and was now seen building on the momentum further beyond the 1.2600 handle.

   •  Technical indicators on the 1-hourly chart have been gaining traction and remained supportive of the ongoing up-move amid a modest USD retracement.

   •  However, oscillators on 4-hourly/daily charts are yet to move out of the bearish territory and hence, any subsequent might remain capped near the 200-hour SMA.
