    FXStreet (Córdoba) - GBP/USD turned lower and retraced daily gains after being rejected by the 1.4900 level at the beginning of the American session.

    Despite a negative revision to UK GDP, GBP/USD managed to advance on Wednesday, although the upside was capped by the 1.49 mark, putting the pair back under pressure as the US dollar also benefitted from better-than-expected durable goods orders.

    With the setback contained by the 1.4860 area, Cable is currently trading at 1.4870, still up 0.3% on the day, but not far from its 8-month low scored on Tuesday at 1.4804.
