    FXStreet (Córdoba) - GBP/USD failed to sustain gains above 1.4300 and pulled back from 1-week highs during the American afternoon.

    Cable extended its recovery from 7-year lows scored on Thursday despite disappointing UK retail sales figures, but it lost momentum and slid back below the 200-hour SMA (1.4295) after posting a high of 1.4361 earlier on the day.

    At time of writing, GBP/USD is trading at 1.4288, still up 0.49% on the day and poised to record three daily gains in a row for first time in two months. The pound is also on track for a weekly gain versus the dollar, the first in four.
