    FXStreet (Mumbai) - The USD ran into fresh offers, pushing the GBP/USD pair back to its hourly 50-MA located at 1.5465 levels after the official report showed US industrial production contracted for the second month.

    Supported at 23.6% retracement

    The pair found support at 1.5436, which is the 23.6% retracement of the move witnessed this week from the Tuesday’s low of 1.52 to Thursday’s high of 1.5509 levels. The GBP/USD pair slumped earlier today on account of a broad based USD recovery ahead of the weekend.

    However, the US weak industrial production figure pushed the spot back to 1.5465 levels. The focus now shifts to the US University of Michigan Confidence index due for release in a few minutes.

    GBP/USD Technical Levels
